But the rest of us may soon have the chance to shovel, snow-blow and plow with lake effect snow from Lake Ontario adding to the accumulations.

If you have to go out, check in with 24 Hour News 8 for traffic updates beginning 4:30 a.m. Tuesday on Daybreak. Places from Butler to Beaver counties could see closer to 2 inches of snow with isolated higher totals north of Interstate 80 due to lake effect snow through the day on Tuesday.

In case there was any doubt, Mother Nature is serving up a healthy reminder that lake-effect snow season is definitely here, with several rounds of wintry weather on the way for the Great Lakes this week. Highs on Tuesday will struggle to make it into the mid-20s for many, and Wednesday will be colder still, with thermometers topping out in the teens across most of Upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania.

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Oneida, Onondaga, and Madison counties from 7pm Monday through 6pm Wednesday. The most urgent is a Lake Effect Snow Warning in effect for Clarion, Forest and Venango counties.

Kent, Kalamazoo, Barry, Newaygo, Calhoun, Lake and Osceola counties are all under a Winter Weather Advisory until 7 a.m. Wednesday; Ionia and Montcalm counties area also under a Winter Weather Advisory until 1 a.m. Tuesday. Higher totals are possible, especially in Van Buren, Oceana and Mason counties. The weekend is now forecast to be dry.

Low temperatures will dip into the 20s, but it will be warmer along the lakes. Some parts of Northeast Ohio could see over a foot of snow.
