Friday: Frosty morning to mild daytime, before major winter storm rolls in


Round of snow showers tapering off in the U.P. late Thursday night as high pressure briefly builds in the region. Residual moisture and subfreezing temperatures lend to the potential of freezing drizzle Friday morning. Take caution on icy patches or walkways and roads. It’s a brief reprieve from the snow Friday, until a major winter system from the Central Plains arrives during the evening hours — producing powerful wind gusts and widespread moderate to heavy snow chances. Major travel impacts Friday night through Saturday include poor visibility from whiteout conditions, slick roads, and possible road blockages from snow accumulation. Snowfall amounts from Friday night through Saturday can total over 6″, with 10″ or more in Central and Eastern U.P. locations. Expect travel conditions to improve Sunday as milder weather follows after the system’s exit.
