Another Lake Effect Snow Band Develops This Afternoon

LAKE EFFECT SNOW RETURNS TO NEW AREAS IN NWI LATE TODAY/TONIGHT

After our first round of heavy lake effect snow is winding down as of 1pm, the second round is getting started to the NW of Chicago. We’ll see snow showers and flurries with breaks for sun this afternoon before another round of lake effect swings into NWI later today and tonight.

Picture below: Our first lake effect snow band (1) is fading to snow showers and our second band (2) is beginning to develop well NW of our area.

We’ve already seen 6-11 inches in parts of NW Lake County where the snow hit hardest. Areas just outside of this morning’s snow band have seen only flurries with little if any accumulation. Welcome to lake effect snow!

Here’s what the radar looked like earlier this morning as the snow barreled into Lake County:

The snow set to affect the area late today into tonight may impact Porter and LaPorte counties in addition to Lake County. The wind will turn more out of the north, but the snow doesn’t look to be quite as organized as this morning’s snowfall. Even still, a localized area could see some larger totals–all depends on where it sets up and for how long–all of which we’ll be tracking for you! Stay tuned!
