An early season Great Lakes storm is producing heavy snow, high winds, and large waves. As the front moves east, much below normal temperatures will spread to the East Coast. Heavy rain in the Northeast may produce flooding. Breezy conditions along the north Gulf Coast will produce critical fire weather threats. Dry and unusual warmth and air quality issues persist in the Pacific Northwest.
Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening
- Heavy, wet snow will continue today, mainly inland from Lake Superior, resulting in poor travel conditions. Additional snow accumulations 3 to 6 inches are expected in the higher terrain a few miles inland from Lake Superior. Near the shoreline, little or no snow accumulation will occur due to rain only or rain mixing with the snow at times. North winds will gust to 35 to 45 mph, but to as high as around 50 mph along Lake Superior from Big Bay to Shot Point.
- Baraga and Marquette Counties on the Upper Michigan Peninsula
- Impacts: Travel will be very difficult in some high terrain areas. The hazardous conditions will impact the morning and evening commutes today. Gusty winds and wet snow could bring down tree branches, resulting in potentially widespread power outages.
Flood Advisory remains in effect until Wednesday morning
- Flooding caused by excessive rainfall continues to be possible.
- Impacts: Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations. Creeks and streams may rise out of their banks. Storm drains and ditches may become clogged with debris. Low-lying roadways flooding is possible.
