The Midwest and the Northeast continue to take a beating through the weekend, unusually cool in the in the South with more action in West Virginia and storms for the Pac Northwest. RC
Cold air and winds will make for more lake-effect snow Friday in Wisconsin, most of the UP, western Michigan, parts of Indiana and Ohio. Snow totals of over 1 foot are possible east of Cleveland. Saturday, outside of some lingering lake effect snow in Iowa and Ohio, the Midwest looks to be action free.
Action is back in the Midwest Monday with snow/rain mix around the Great Lakes. Lake-effect snow may linger behind the storm Tuesday and Wednesday.
Cold temps keep the lake-effect snow rolling before slowing down on Saturday. Parts of northwest Pennsylvania and southwest New York could pick up over 2 feet of snow. The Laurel Mountains in PA and the mountains of West Virginia including Snowshoe could receive up to a foot of snow. Upstate New York off to the southeast of Lake Ontario could see well over a foot of snow.
More cold weather slowly moves through the region Monday and Tuesday and could change snow to rain in the Hudson Valley, southern New England and southern New Hampshire The storm is forecast to exit slowly by midweek, producing lake-effect snow and more snow and rain for New England.
More showers in the forecast for the Pac Northwest over the weekend with light snow on Friday for Montana and Wyoming. A front on Saturday will drop snow levels in the Northwest, but Sunday and Monday look to be dry. A system due be midweek could bring some much needed action to the California coast and Southwest.
