Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
Lake effect snow (LES) in the northwest wind belts diminish Tuesday morning as drier, warmer air moves into Upper Michigan. Then, a front from the Canadian Prairies approaches the western counties Tuesday afternoon, initially producing mixed rain-and-snow showers and then transitioning to mainly rain showers in the evening as warmer air continues to fill the U.P. atmosphere. Wind speeds pick up from the southeast as the front pushes through the region. Gradual clearing takes effect Wednesday, then on Thursday the lake effect snow machine returns, this time for the west wind belts as cold polar air filters into the region. Brief high pressure brings mild conditions Friday and early Saturday, only for wintry weather conditions to return again late Saturday as another Canadian Prairies-based system enters the Upper Peninsula.
