Winter Weather Alert: Which states will have snow Tuesday

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued severe weather advisories due to frigid US weather. You must determine if you are in an impacted location and take actions to be warm and safe.

The NWS issues Winter Weather Advisory “for any amount of freezing rain, or when 2 to 4 inches of snow (alone or in combination with sleet and freezing rain), is expected to cause a significant inconvenience, 

but not serious enough to warrant a warning.” See the NWS website, which aggregates and maintains these warnings, for details.

The NWS issues a Winter Storm Warning, which predicts "heavy snow of at least 6 inches in 12 hours, or at least 8 inches in 24 hours

 Sleet buildup of at least half an inch can also trigger it.” Michigan is the only state under a Winter Storm Warning until 7 AM Tuesday.

The NWS predicts “heavy lake effect snow and patchy blowing snow” in Grand Marais, Munising, Newberry, and Seney. Four to seven inches of snow may fall, with some places experiencing 10. Road users will be at risk from high winds.

“Travel could be very difficult,” and “conditions could impact the morning or evening commute,” says the NWS. Remember that poor visibility and dangerous circumstances might affect your morning and evening journeys.

Drivers should pack a flashlight, food, and drink in case they can't reach their destination, according to the National Weather Service.

Stay tuned for developments.
