It can hurt the ice and it can help the ice. It all depends on the circumstances. Snow insulates. So say we get a couple 2-4 inches of snow on the ice we have now and it warms up it will help keep the ice that we have, it will also melt the snow on top and refreeze making the ice thicker.

Not unless it is 6+ inches or a heavy wet snow. The southern counties may get about 3-5 or 6 inches of light, powdery snow, but those of you up in Oakland county and St.clair will probably only see like an inch, maybe 2-3 in spots.

Hopefully the wind will push the snow around (and not the ice) All depends on the track of the storm..

If there's already skim ice and it is a light snow with winds, that stuff will blow right off the lake.

The ice is rock hard, and the snow that we will get should be lite and fluffy do to the fact thats it's going to be a cold front snow.

I recall a few years back Checking out first ice at Geno's . The ice was approximately 5 to 6 inches. Where there were patches of snow on the ice the ice thickness was only 1"

I just hope its light and fluffy so the wind will move it off the ice.
