Lake effect snow will wind down through early Wednesday as winds will push ongoing lake effect snow in the Grand Traverse region offshore. There is a clipper system that will cross Wednesday bringing accumulating snow to parts but not all of Northern Michigan with additional lake effect snow following suit behind that system for Thursday.

Winds will push any lake effect snow offshore through early Wednesday. It will be a bitterly cold night with temperatures ranging from -5 to +18F across Northern Michigan (coldest overnight near the Canadian border). Inland a few stars will dot the sky.

Now to the incoming clipper system for Wednesday. The heavier snow by a wide margin will fall along/west of a Traverse City-Cadillac-Clare line. If you are in the Eastern U.P./Straits/NE Lower Michigan you very well may get some sunshine at times Wednesday with no snow. That being said, snow will develop along Lake Michigan from Leelanau County south Wednesday morning through mid to late afternoon. There is good reason to believe the heaviest snow totals will fall around Manistee/Ludington into the Big Rapids areas. The weather models are still struggling with how much snow will fall with lower end amounts in the 2-4" range in the areas mentioned above Wednesday. Higher estimates are in the 5-7" range with areas including Manistee/Ludington/Big Rapids perhaps looking at more than a half foot of snow by the end of Wednesday.

Again, there will be a very sharp cutoff to the northward extent of snow with spots from Gaylord north remaining dry.

Either way, this system will sink south and away from us Wednesday evening allowing for some lake effect snow to kick in for Thursday in the usual snow belt areas where another couple inches of snow will fall.

Another clipper arrives Friday leading to light snow at times across Northern Michigan. Temperatures will remain in the teens Wednesday getting back into the 20's Thursday/Friday.
