Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A frontal system brings a wintry mix of precipitation overnight in the eastern counties of Upper Michigan, while lake effect snow showers develop west in the Copper Country. Westerly winds gain strength overnight, with gusts over 30 mph possible through early Tuesday morning -- patchy blowing snow can lead to reduced road visibility for morning commuters in the west wind belts from the Copper Country to the eastern counties. Snow showers taper off Tuesday midday, a brief reprieve until the afternoon when a Central Plains-based system brings widespread snow showers through Wednesday morning.
2nd Half of the Week: High pressure provides a midweek break from the snow until Thursday afternoon from another Central Plains-based system. Then, the tail end of a Northern Plains system brings scattered snow shower chances on New Year’s Eve, followed by north wind belt-based lake effect snow during New Year’s weekend.
Tuesday: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy with few morning snow showers in the west wind belts, then afternoon snow becoming widespread by the evening
>Highs: Upper 20s to Mid 30s (warmer south)
Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy with snow showers early then diminishing in the afternoon; breezy
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers by midday
Friday, New Year’s Eve: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers in the evening
Saturday, New Year’s Day: Mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers; windy
Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy with lake effect snow showers over the north wind belts; blustery with below seasonal temperatures
Monday: Partly cloudy early then mostly cloudy in the afternoon with scattered snow showers
