Snowfall Map Shows Biggest Impact in One State as Storm Rages On


1 week ago 29

A powerful storm is expected to bring as much as 30 more inches of snow to Marquette, Michigan, through Wednesday night.

Heavy snow and gusty winds have been battering Wisconsin and Michigan on their way to the Northeast. The storm began affecting the Great Lakes region on Tuesday and will move into the Northeast on Wednesday, where it will remain until Saturday.

The storm is expected to dump more snow—surpassing 2 feet—in the Great Lakes region through Wednesday night, according to messaging from the National Weather Service's (NWS) Weather Prediction Center.

"Snow will continue throughout the region today, with additional heavy likely snow across portions of Upper Michigan and northern Wisconsin," the message said. "Before ending on Thursday, snowfall accumulations over 2 feet are likely in parts of Upper Michigan."

As of 8 a.m. Wednesday, Marquette had received 8 inches of snow from the storm, NWS meteorologist Lily Chapman told Newsweek. Snow will continue falling through Thursday morning, she said.

The NWS Weather Prediction Center shared a snowfall map that showed the heaviest of snow is expected to fall in Marquette, with at least 30 inches. Other areas in the Upper Peninsula, including Ironwood and Houghton, are expecting at least an additional 8 inches of snow.

Much of Wisconsin will receive an additional 3 to 4 inches, with some areas in the northeastern corner of the state and near Viroqua in the southwestern corner expecting up to 8 inches of additional snowfall. Northern Illinois, southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa are expecting some additional snowfall, up to 4 inches in some areas.

The storm will move into the Northeast on Wednesday, where it will remain through at least Friday.

"Snowfall accumulations of 1-2 feet are likely across portions of northern New York and New England," the Weather Prediction Center said, although AccuWeather meteorologists are forecasting as much as 42 inches of snow in some higher elevation areas in the Adirondack Mountains.

"Heavy snowfall rates and gusty winds will result in dangerous travel, with whiteout conditions and snow-covered roads. The combination of wet snow, a high snow load, and strong wind gusts could also cause tree damage and power outages," the prediction center said.

Despite spring's arrival, the incoming system could be one of the biggest storms of the season for northern New York and northern New England, according to AccuWeather meteorologists.

The NWS Weather Prediction Center shared a map showing that the storm was expected to be the most severe in southern Maine, through much of New Hampshire and in southern Vermont and northern New York.
