Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez

Blustery and snowy conditions ramp up in Upper Michigan following the passage of Canadian clipper system Friday night. Strong northwesterly winds bring a chill factor down to the -20s especially for interior locations overnight. Scattered lake effect snow showers, moderate to heavy at times flow from Lake Superior. Drivers take caution for slippery roads and blowing snow to reduced visibility.

After mostly sunny skies and isolated snow showers during the blustery Saturday, the second Canadian clipper system rolls into the Western U.P. late Saturday night, spreading light to moderate snow showers east through the end of Sunday. Weekend snowfall accumulations range from 1-6″, with higher amounts east and near Lake Superior.

Under the west-northwesterly jet stream, temperatures trend below seasonal throughout much of the weekend in Upper Michigan. Then a gradual warmup follows as the jet stream shifts from the southwest next week -- a potential for astronomical winter to end in a thaw before the Mar. 20 vernal equinox.
