Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A fast-moving Canadian Prairies system (clipper) rolls through Upper Michigan Friday evening, bringing light to moderate widespread snow showers and a rush of northwesterly winds gusting over 30 mph at times. Following the clipper system’s exit early Saturday, frigid arctic air enters the region, leading to lake effect snow showers over the northwest wind belts throughout the weekend. Weekend snow accumulations range from 1-6″, with the highest amounts along the northwest wind belts in the Copper Country and Eastern U.P.
Snow chances diminish early next week and temperatures gradually climb towards the seasonal average, until a Central Plains system brings mixed rain and snow chances to the U.P. Wednesday and Thursday.
