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 ahead of an Alberta clipper. A deep low pressure system responsible for the most recent winter storm in the eastern U.S. and severe weather in Florida is forecast to move farther into southeastern Canada on Tuesday. Much of the rest of the interior Northeast will 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 approaches.
