DISCUSSION: As a strong low pressure system continues to push eastward over the next 24 to 48 hours, there will be a continued trend for strong cold air to surge deeper into the eastern-half of the United States. As a result of this increasingly stronger cold air advection, there will be also be a substantially greater likelihood of heavier lake effect snowfall to kick up off of both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. It is worth noting that to the south and east of Lake Superior, many people are already experiencing heavy lake effect snowfall just to the east of Marquette, Michigan. In addition to the first significant lake effect snowfall event of the 2016-2017 winter season, there have also been a plethora of freeze warnings issued across many parts of the southern and southeastern United States.
