Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez

Scattered rain showers Wednesday night in Upper Michigan with a transition to wintry mix showers over the Western U.P. as a low pressure system approaches the region. The wintry mix transition continues east into Thursday as cold polar air gradually fills the Upper Michigan atmosphere. Drive with caution on slippery roads Wednesday night through Thursday -- areas of patchy fog can occasionally reduce visibility down to less than a half-mile, especially during the morning hours.

Precipitation fully transitions to scattered snow showers Friday -- snowfall accumulations through Saturday range from 1-6″, with 7″ or more over the Lake Superior shorelines of the Copper Country and Western Marquette Counties. A chance of 10″ or more snowfall is possible in the elevated Superior Upland locations west through Saturday.

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.
