Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A low pressure system over Lake Michigan spins up mixed rain and snow to the U.P. Monday night -- mainly light in intensity but at the same time gradually increasing the moisture content above the surface. As a result, areas of dense freezing fog and drizzle develop overnight and last through Tuesday morning.
Peeks of sunshine Tuesday afternoon under brief high pressure, but a Northern Plains system enters the Western U.P. in the evening, spreading moderate to heavy rain showers over the region Wednesday.
Precipitation transitions to a wintry mix through Thursday, then to scattered snow showers Friday -- Friday snowfall accumulations can exceed 3″ in the Northern U.P., and 3″ or less south.
Into the weekend, high pressure builds to clear out the snow and clouds, with above seasonal temperatures climbing Sunday.
