Snowflakes to Fly Across the Great Lakes at Midweek

As residents are far from over with the recent cold winter across the Great Lakes, Mother Nature will bring the return of snowflakes to the region this week.

As cooler air builds in, snow showers will brush the area on Wednesday night.

An upper-level low pressure system will persist across southern Ontario and Quebec through the end of the week. As the jet stream remains to the south of the Great Lakes, cool air from Canada will be in place.

Abundant moisture will be present across the region to allow the development of rain and snow showers.

According to Meteorologist Steve Travis, "Rain showers will spread across the region during the day Wednesday, then as temperatures fall near freezing Wednesday night, some snowflakes will mix in."

The threat of snow showers will also occur on Tuesday night across the upper Great Lakes, including Marquette, Michigan.

"Most places will not see any accumulation, however a few areas over higher elevations could pick up a coating on grassy surfaces," Travis said.

Due to the recent warm spell across the region, any snowflakes that fall will quickly melt on roadways with no accumulation expected, even if temperatures dip a couple degrees below freezing.

The areas with the greatest chance for a coating of snow will be across the northern and Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the Adirondack, White and Green Mountains.
