Strong wind and snow moving through the U.P. Thursday

Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez

A Canadian Prairies system in tandem with a Central Midwest front work to bring in widespread snow showers to the U.P. Thursday and diminishing into Friday morning -- snowfall accumulations from 1″-3″ possible, with potential for higher amounts in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Gusty southerly winds with the system can also produce patchy blowing snow, resulting in poor visibility at times for drivers. Wet snow can also create slushy road conditions -- drive with caution and adjust speed accordingly.

Another system comes late Friday, based from the Central Plains to deliver widespread snow chances of at least moderate intensity, and following in its wake, lake effect snow in the north wind belts (mainly the eastern half of the U.P.) Saturday.

A drier milder trend sets in Sunday and continues into the start of next week.
