(Maci Tetrick/ABC 57 Meteorologist) A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Michigan portion of our listening area through 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18. Heavy lake-effect snow was falling in those counties, as well as LaPorte County and the western portion of St. Joseph County early Friday morning, slowing travelers. Roads could be slick, even if they aren’t coated in a lot of snow, so give yourself lots of extra drive time.

Wind chills could dip all the way into the lower teens this morning. It is breezy, and lake effect snow showers likely continue in our Michigan counties and northern portions of our Indiana counties. The cold sticks around, with below freezing temperatures throughout the weekend.

Sunday the clouds start to break a little, and should be a snow-free day. Monday and Tuesday will be much nicer days with sunshine and highs jumping into the lower 40s. A system looks to move through later in the day Thanksgiving, but with temperatures above freezing, we might only see rain showers or a rain/snow mix that continues into Black Friday.

Your ABC 57 First Warning Neighborhood Weather Center Forecast:

Friday: Lake Effect Snow. Cold, breezy. High 28.

Friday Night: Lake Effect Snow. Low 16.
