Over a foot of snow is possible wherever lake effect bands persist in the lake effect snow warned areas.

Snow continues to push through Metro Detroit, bringing advisories, more snow throughout the week and wind chills below zero during the day on Tuesday. Blowing and drifting snow could happen in rural areas Wednesday evening. The heaviest snow accumulation there is expected to late Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with snow developing after midnight. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-20s through the low 30s.

It's behind this system that we move back into the lake-effect regime, with the potential for some heavy lake-effect snows Tuesday night through Wednesday night.

The highest amounts of snow are expected over the Fox Cities and along the Lake Michigan shoreline, but much of northern Wisconsin can expect snow Wednesday, the weather service said. The wind chill may possibly reach minus 3 degrees by evening.

After Wednesday we're not quite in the clear from the cold and snowiness. There's also another clipper moving to the south that MAY spread a bit of light snow across parts of CNY later Wednesday night, especially around and south of Rt.

A winter weather advisory for snow means meteorologists believe periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties.

Even this weekend isn't looking completely quiet. There could be some mixed rain and snow showers Sunday.
