Snow into Monday
Mon, 23 Dec 2013 01:00:00 GMT —
More snow is on the way heading into the workweek.
As low pressure works its way into Canada Sunday, then continues eastward, northern Michigan will see more snow showers.
The heaviest snow fell throughout Sunday morning and into the early afternoon, winding down closer to dinner.
Here are some of the totals through Sunday evening: Alba - 10", Rapid City - 8", Williamsburg - 7.5", 3mi S Suttons Bay - 7", 3mi SE Omer - 7", 5mi E Turner - 6", Luzerne - 6", Gaylord - 5.4", 5mi SSW Brethren - 5", Wurtsmith Airfield - 5", 17mi ESE Goetzville - 5", Lake Ann - 5", Indian River - 5", Kincheloe - 5", Waters - 5", Pickford - 5", Wellston - 4", 2mi SSW Lachine - 4".
The issue was NE winds causing drifting and snow-covered roads, and low visibilities. Some areas had snowfall rates of 1-2"/hr.
Light snow showers will move across the area Sunday night, with most picking up an inch or two, maybe three by daybreak. If anything, there will be very light accumulations throughout the day Monday.
We will see some sunshine, but don't expect it to feel warm Monday or Tuesday. Highs will remain in the single digits to teens, with wind chills (North winds at 5-20mph) it will feel more like 0 to 15 below.
If you have traveling to do for the Christmas holiday, try and get it done during the day Tuesday. Our next system makes its way in later Tuesday night, and looks to bring accumulating snowfall through Wednesday and into Thursday.
Remember to clear off your car completely so other drivers can see your lights, keep the headlights on, and allow yourself extra time to reach destinations in snowy conditions. Also, when its this cold, do not leave your pets outside.
We'll keep watching the next system and continue to keep you updated.
