ACTIVE WINTER WEATHER INTO THE WEEKEND…
Several rounds of late season winter weather will affect Upper
Michigan through the upcoming weekend. The first low pressure
system will bring a quick burst of snow this morning. Light to
moderate snow will move in with this system bringing snowfall
amounts in the 1 to 3 inch range through much of the area. There
may also may be a brief period of light freezing rain or drizzle
over the south near US-2. The morning commute this morning could
be difficult in some areas.
Following this system, a narrow swath of heavy wet snow of 4 to 6
inches is expected to develop over portions of southern and far
western Upper Michigan Friday into Friday night out ahead of a
strong deepening low over the central Plains. There will be a
sharp northern cutoff to the heavier snow and there could also be
a wintry mix over south central Upper Michigan, which would lead
to lesser snow amounts.
There could be another round of heavy and wet snow Saturday night
into Sunday over south central Upper Michigan as the low moves
across the Great Lakes. There could be periods of heavy and wet
snow and there may be blowing and drifting snow as well.

latest details concerning this late season winter weather,” NWS Meteorologists.
