Report Based on NWS Buffalo's Latest Forecast: Major winter storm begins to exit the Northeast; blustery conditions
continue into Tuesday with lake-effect snows
Snow is now spreading across the upper Midwest to the Great Lakes arriving on Tuesday

the eastern U.S. and severe weather in Florida is forecast to move farther

see the snow becoming more scattered tonight.
Other than the tendency for lake-effect snows to linger downwind of the lower Great Lakes, the snow
across the Northeast should gradually taper off on Tuesday. However, due
to the size of the departing storm, blustery conditions are expected to
continue into Tuesday for much of the Northeast.
Meanwhile, a cold front across southern Canada will dip toward the
northern Plains. An Alberta clipper is forecast to form on the front on
Monday and then move toward the Great Lakes on Tuesday. Lingering snow
across the Great Lakes will pick up in intensity on Tuesday as the clipper
