TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Parts of Michigan are seeing lake-effect snow as winter weather takes hold across the state.

Since Sunday night in the northwestern Lower Peninsula near Lake Michigan, the National Weather Service says nearly 7 inches of snow was reported in Traverse City; 6 inches fell in Suttons Bay and Interlochen; and 3 inches was reported in Frankfort and Eastport.

Keith Berger, a weather service meteorologist in Gaylord, tells the Traverse City Record-Eagle accumulating snow will be tapering off Monday in the area.

Winds, meanwhile, are creating lake-effect snow off of Lake Huron in Michigan’s Thumb region. The weather service says Monday morning that up to 4 inches of snow was reported between Port Sanilac and Lakeport. Up to 8 inches is possible in places.

Whiteout conditions were reported in Saginaw County.
