Our current forecast once again has Lake effect snow in the forecast. I never knew of this terminology until moving to the Saugatuck Michigan area when I first purchased the bed and breakfast eight years ago. But since then, the Michigan winter weather forecast has used this terminology countless times. I am sure this won’t be the last time we hear of it this year either. Basically, it means that we will have a beautiful softly falling snow coming down almost continuously while the lake effect snow pattern is in effect. It really does create what we know well as a beautiful Michigan winter scenery.
