Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A moisture-rich Northern Plains system brings moderate to heavy rain to Upper Michigan, starting west Tuesday night then spreading towards the Eastern U.P. into Wednesday midday. Slippery roads, water ponding and gusty winds to impact road travel, especially during the morning commute.

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., even 8″ or more over the Western Highlands, and 3″ or less south.
Into the weekend, high pressure builds to clear out the snow and clouds, with above seasonal temperatures climbing along a southwesterly jet stream Sunday.
The southwesterly jet stream, however, opens the door to Central Plains-based systems to bring widespread rain, even thunderstorm chances to Upper Michigan early next week.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with moderate to heavy rain showers, then mixed rain/freezing rain/sleet in the evening in the Western U.P.; easterly through southeasterly winds gusting over 30 mph
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with mixed rain/freezing rain/sleet early then transitioning to snow west in the afternoon; blustery
Friday: Mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers; blustery
Saturday: Partly to mostly cloudy with few to scattered snow showers then diminishing in the afternoon
