Finally, Some Snow

20120111-155219.jpg
So far this Winter has been pretty quiet, especially the lower 48. (Alaska is another story.) While parts of the Mountain West have received a fair amount of snow, much of the country is experiencing a snow drought this Winter. It appears this drought will begin to wane this week in parts of the Great Lakes. A snow storm is set to move through the Midwest bringing at least 6 inches of snow to parts of Wisconsin and Michigan this week. Winter storm watches are in effect on both lakeshores of Lake Michigan. A strong shot of cold air is expected behind the storm bringing lake effect snow to the snowbelts of the Great Lakes. Unlike previous cold shots this Winter, the cold air behind this storm is expected to stick around, keeping temperatures near their January normal.
