Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A major winter system from the Central Plains brings powerful wind gusts and widespread moderate to heavy snow chances to Upper Michigan Friday night through Saturday. Major travel impacts 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 plus over a foot in the central highlands. Expect travel conditions to improve Sunday as milder weather follows after the system’s exit. The mild stretch extends into next week, with a return to winter weather by Friday.
