We’ll continue to see periods of light snow work through the Region this week as we remain on the southern periphery of an expansive area of arctic air. That periphery is right where the storm track travels as small doses of Pacific moisture meet up with the cold arctic flow.
While we’re not expecting any big accumulations out of these different rounds of snow, the frigid temps will allow ALL of the snow to accumulate and create slippery travel as they move through.
TIMING OUT EACH ROUND OF SNOW
The first round will continue to spread light snow through NWI Monday morning with a more significant batch of light to moderate snow expected later Monday into Monday night. A general 1-3 inches will fall from this Monday afternoon-Monday night wave.
We’ll see some lake effect set up briefly behind this system for Tuesday, mainly in LaPorte county into SW lower Michigan before our next round of snow sets up to our south.
More light snow will be possible Wednesday with this system favoring our southern communities. We’ll watch yet another round move in Thursday.
While each system will drop a few inches of snow, it’ll add up across the Region and the Ohio Valley by the end of the week. Take a look at how the storm track at the southern end of this arctic air becomes visible through this snow accumulation forecast:
