Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
High pressure builds over Upper Michigan and much of the Upper Midwest Monday night, enforcing drying and sinking air aloft. The upper air clearing allows for U.P. surfaces to cool to subfreezing temperatures through Tuesday morning. Along with the combination of light winds and dewpoints in the teens, the cooler temps produce saturated air that remains bottled up near surface and resulting in freezing fog. Take caution on slick roads and walkways due to the potential of icy patches both by the freezing fog and refreezing of water previously melted Monday afternoon. Clear any ice on windshields before driving.
High pressure limits precipitation chances until Wednesday, when the southern edge of a Canadian Prairies-based system brushes over the U.P. and brings isolated rain chances to the region.
Then, on Friday a Colorado-based low pressure system brings a chance of wintry precipitation to the mix in Upper Michigan. Though tracked to move south of the region, the potential for the wintry mix would come from wraparound moisture off the system’s low pressure circulation.
A mild and benign weather pattern transitions towards the first weekend of spring 2022. Then, a Colorado-based low pressure system brings widespread, accumulating precipitation to Upper Michigan early next week.
