Snow will continue throughout the Arrowhead and will dump from 4-8" in Lake County, 9-12" is possible in Cook county with the eastern tip of Cook seeing more than 12". The Twin Ports, Range and I falls will be in the 2-4" range of wet heavy stuff. The South Shore and U.P. is in the 1-3" range. Even an inch of this sloppy snow can cause roads to be hazardous.
