Our next storm system moves in on Thursday with widespread rain by the morning. Rainfall amounts will be around .50″ to 1.0″ with the highest in the west and less than .50″ in the east. Then, during the day as an area of low pressure lifts north through western Lake Superior winds will become strong with gusts out of the southeast one excess of 35mph at times.

Then, a transition to rain/snow mix develops by Friday afternoon, and gradually cooling follows in the wake of this system. As of now, unorganized lake effect snow showers will be around on and off throughout the weekend.
