A weakening area of low pressure is moving into the Ohio River Valley this morning. Moisture associated with this system will slowly track from south to north across the area during the day. For the west end, it will mainly be wet snow throughout the morning and the afternoon. However, in the southcentral and east where temperatures are well above freezing it will initially be light rain before a slow transition into wet snow during the afternoon. Then, wind out of the northeast increase and we switch to lake enhanced snow through Saturday. Most places will end up with 1-3″. The high terrain places along the north/northeast wind belts in Marquette and Baraga counties will end up with higher snow amounts near 6″. Cooler air will surge in next week. The pattern looks to stay progressive with two more disturbances for Tuesday and Thursday.
