Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
Calm before the wintry storm: High pressure over the Northern Plains produces clearing skies and diminishes lake effect snow showers in Upper Michigan. Below seasonal temperatures result for Tuesday, though tempered by filtered sunshine during the daytime. Then Tuesday evening, a tandem of Canadian Prairies, Central Plains systems make their way to Western and Southern Upper Michigan, bringing moderate to heavy rounds of widespread snow, sleet, freezing rain and non-freezing rain through midweek. Ice accumulations can exceed one-quarter of an inch especially in the highlands west.
In addition to hazardous road conditions, storm impacts include sporadic power outages, damaged trees and localized flooding nearshore.
