The National Weather Service said the lake-enhanced snow machine will continue into Wednesday afternoon. Another 3-6 inches can be expected along the Lakeshore by Wednesday afternoon.
Winds mainly out of the west will gust up to near 30 mph. Snow-covered and slippery roads will create hazardous driving, and visibilities will be reduced to near zero at times.
The Michigan Department of Transportation reminds motorists to adjust speeds based on the conditions, and to take it slow in ice and snow.
