First accumulating snow for some early Tuesday

Thomas Faner took this picture Tuesday morning showing almost 2" of snow along the shores of Hammond Bay on Lake Huron.

Some counties received the first accumulating snowfall of the season Monday night/early Tuesday leading to slick roads in spots.

Northern Michigan is and will remain under the influence of a large pool of unseasonably chilly weather through at least the remainder of this week. Those cold winds crossing the much warmer waters of Lakes Superior/Michigan have and will continue to lead to numerous lake induced rain/snow showers which will drift in on occasion.

The highest snow amounts we could find early Tuesday were 3" which was reported three miles north of Vanderbilt in Otsego County and several 2" reports in places such as Alanson, Burt Lake, over and along highway M-68 into the Onaway area up to the Lake Huron shoreline including along Hammond Bay near Cheboygan.

With afternoon heating, some of the snow showers will switch over to rain, but at night especially this week, snow showers will be likely downwind of the Great Lakes. Daytime highs this week will remain in the low/mid-40's with overnight low temperatures falling below freezing except right along the immediate lakeshore areas.
