A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 10 pm. Strong winds and lake-effect snow showers will cause slippery spots on roads this Monday PM/night. We have seen gusts of 40-50 mph especially at Lake Michigan. Lake-effect snow showers and flurries will continue through the day. Accumulations will be in the 1-3″ range, but strong winds may cause some drifting snow. That will cause reduced visibility. Gale Warnings are in effect for Lake Michigan. Stay off piers and breakwalls.
