A weather spotter five miles southeast of Superior reported 11.5 inches of snow as of 2:45 a.m. Saturday. Other totals of 4 to 8 inches were reported in Allouez and other eastern neighborhoods of the city, with 2 inches in downtown Superior through late Friday night.

The band of heavy snow, caused by cold air moving across the warmer waters of Lake Superior, was very localized; the Duluth airport received only 0.3 inches of snow overnight.

The area of focus for heavy snow today is along the North Shore, where a lake-effect snow advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. for Lake and Cook counties. The National Weather Service reported that snow totals will be highly variable, but some locations along the North Shore may see 5 to 7 inches of snow through this evening.

Elsewhere in the Northland, an inch or two of accumulation is possible from snow showers moving across the region today.
