After the widespread light snow moves past MI late Monday night, a heavy lake effect snow pattern will develop in a few areas of western Lower and the Upper Peninsula. Snow accumulation up to 1 inch is possible. However, another band of lake-effect snow will develop over the lake later and eventually move back on shore Sunday night across the east-side snow belt. Everyone could get around an inch with this batch with more expected with lake enhancement in the snow-belt.

The winter storm watch, issued by the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh, takes effect tonight at 7 and is expected to last until 4 p.m. Wednesday, including expected heavy snow during Tuesday's morning commute and continuing throughout the day.

Texas hires TCU AD Chris Del Conte for same position
Del Conte took over at TCU in 2009 and has raised that athletic program to heights the Horned Frogs have never reached before. Under his watch TCU also underwent several athletic upgrades, most notably the construction of the new Amon G.

But the break will be short-lived, as another, more potent system pulls into the Great Lakes region overnight Monday into Tuesday. Temperatures will be in the low 30s.

A winter storm watch for heavy lake effect snow means there is a potential for a large amount of snow in only a few hours. Highs on Tuesday will struggle to make it into the mid-20s for many, and Wednesday will be colder still, with thermometers topping out in the teens across most of Upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania.
