Some optimistic news from the meteorologists...

Lake effect snow is on its way to parts of midwest (incl Michigan) and the northeast.



Long-range forecasts now favoring above-normal snow for northern lower peninsula, east coast/appalachia.

Quote:
A higher frequency of clipper systems is expected for the northern Plains and Midwest compared to what meteorologists were expecting early in the fall.

Clipper systems are fast-moving storms, originating from Alberta, Canada, that carry little moisture. Light to moderate snow usually falls on the northern edge of the clipper system track.
Clipper systems, FYI, are the namesake of Crystal Mountain's high speed "Clipper" quad chair.
