The typical Great Lakes snow belt will get walloped by snow starting on Thanksgiving into the weekend. The snow will set in from west to east across the region during this time period.
The heaviest snow may be thumping across the upper Great Lakes by late on Thanksgiving Day and into the night. Snow will begin to spread across northern Indiana, northern Ohio, western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania Thursday night into Friday.
The potential exists for several inches of disruptive snow to fall just to the lee of Lake Superior over the upper Peninsula of Michigan and too the lee of Lake Michigan over northern parts of Lower Michigan. Lake-effect snow bands will drop the heaviest snow over small zones.
It is not out of the question that a couple of communities may measure the snow in feet rather than inches.
The eastern Great Lakes will be getting hit hard by lake snow on Black Friday into Friday night. The snow will fall all the way through the central Appalachians.

The snow will pile up the heaviest over the higher terrain of western New York, northwestern Pennsylvania and extreme northeastern Ohio. A secondary zone of heavier snow will be over the mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
With strong winds forcing the cold air into the region, significant blowing and drifting of the snow may also occur. This will add to treacherous travel conditions by causing near white out conditions at times that may interfere with holiday travel.
Shoppers on Friday may face extreme travel conditions in Erie, Pa. and around Buffalo and Syracuse, N.Y.
Extremely dangerous travel is expected across some major interstates, including I-90 through western New York and northeastern Ohio.
