ON THE WAY: Accumulating wet snow and arctic blast


Daily Weather Updates on 103 FXD

Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez

A front moves across the U.P. tomorrow through Friday. With temperatures trending above normal in the 30s we’re looking at widespread wet and heavy snow. It slowly moves in during the day and increases by the afternoon. Then, once the front clears it switches to lake effect snow on Friday through the weekend. Snow amounts through Sunday will range around 12″+ in the Keweenaw, with around 8-10″ in the central and eastern U.P., along Lake Michigan 6-8″, and near 12″ in Alger and Luce counties. Impacts during this time period include sloppy roads and poor visibility from blowing snow.

Bitterly cold Arctic air is the second weather story. It sets in during the weekend with temperatures in the single numbers to teens below zero for some. Plus, dangerous wind chills will range from the teens below zero to -35° at times Sunday through Monday.
