feet during the day. Snow levels then fall back to lake level
Friday evening.

Friday and Friday Night. Lake waters will be rough and choppy.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Even light snowfall causes major travel delays, especially during
periods of high traffic volume. Be sure to allow extra time to
reach your destination. Leave extra space between vehicles since
it takes longer to stop on slick roadways.
