Friday looks to be back to more of a westerly wind, and so just a mix of clouds and sun expected there.
Heavy lake-effect snow is expected to develop this week as a blast of Arctic air spreads across the Great Lakes and Northeast causing localized whiteouts and more than two feet of snow in some areas. "Over the next several days, occasional snow showers will dump a small dusting up to 1-2" with minimal accumulations. Most of IN will be dry through the day. All rights reserved.

National Weather Service issues lake effect snow warning for Jefferson, Lewis counties
The National Weather Service is issuing our first Winter Weather Advisory of the season, starting Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. for lakeshore counties in West Michigan: Mason, Lake, Oceana, Muskegon, Ottawa, Allegan, Van Buren and Kalamazoo. We'll also dive into the 2017-2018 winter outlook.
On Thursday evening, the air flow will once again switch to the southwest bringing another round of heavy snow into the Buffalo metro and Watertown area before eventually easing by Friday afternoon. Then a strong cold front sweeps in from the west and northwest late on the 18 into the 19th and has nice moisture flow up the front from the south. In our local television market, the heavy snow is expected to stay out of our region, but we have a few opportunities of seeing some snow, especially next week. The overall weather patterns are favorable for snow heading into next week.
