Winter Storm…The LatestDecember 19th, 2012 at 12:16 pm by Greg Shoup under Weather
Here is the latest track which does take the heaviest snowfall from this weather system north of our area. Snowfall of more than a foot will fall across southern Wisconsin and northern Michigan.
There are some interesting complications for us with this weather system. The lake effect snow machine will begin to turn on early Friday that will bring very heavy snow fall to areas around Lake Michigan.
Here is a look at what Futurecast has forecast through early Friday morning. This is the low pressure related to this system. It may warm the atmosphere for about 3 hours limiting the snowfall with see across NE Indiana.
This is an interesting scenario and we call it a trowel in meteorology. Basically, it shows that the air will briefly warm up around low pressure.

The scenario will change but I’m fairly certain that the heaviest snow will be north and west of our area, except for the lake effect areas.
