Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
Lake effect snow continues in the northwest wind belts of the U.P. Thursday night through Friday morning, with heavier snow bands in the eastern counties close to the Lake Superior shore -- snowfall accumulations more than 5″ possible. With northwest winds gusting over 30 mph at times, there is potential of blowing snow and reduced road visibility, including M-94 from Munising to Hiawatha and M-28 stretching from Shingleton to Seney. Snow showers taper off later Friday as brief high pressure brings milder and drier conditions. Benign weather continues for much of Saturday, then by Sunday wintry weather conditions return as a Canadian Prairies-based system enters the Upper Peninsula. Lake effect snow and windy conditions roll into Monday, followed by a break from precipitation Tuesday as high pressure moves in (for a short stay). An midwestern system enters the U.P. Wednesday, bringing a wintry mix to the region and transitioning to snow showers on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day.
