— TRAVERSE CITY — Commuters across northwest Michigan met another wintry slap in the face this morning, and it's one that's likely to continue for several days.
Snow piled up on area roads throughout the region with the tip of yet another band of lake-effect snow making landfall. Forecasters with the National Weather Service predict the snow will continue through the next several days.
"Just a couple few inches every 12 hours," said meteorologist Andy Sullivan. Sullivan watched the storm move over Traverse City via radar images at the weather service's Gaylord office.
"It's just continual lake effect and lake-enhanced snow," he said.
Snowfall reports from the past weekend's storm ranged from six to nine inches across the region, he said. Still, some observers in areas near Fife Lake and Lake City measured snowfall amounts between 10 and 11 inches.
