After much debate about what the storm this weekend was actually going to do, we now have a good idea of how much snow we will get.  A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect tonight at Midnight and will last through Saturday evening at 7 pm.

According to the National Weather Service: "Total snow accumulations of 5 to 8 inches. Winds gusting as high as 40 mph. The snow may diminish for awhile during the mid-morning hours Saturday, but it will redevelop as the cold air returns by afternoon with strong west winds and falling temperatures."

In addition to the snow, expect high winds that will cause large waves on Lake Michigan causing possible erosion and flooding.
