Snow gradually diminishes, but frigid air continues Friday
Snow showers, gusty winds taper off from west to east Friday under below seasonal temps.
Lake effect snow and blustery conditions continue mainly in the eastern half of Upper Michigan Thanksgiving night through Friday as high pressure brings drier air west. Snowfall and gusty winds diminish U.P.-wide towards Friday afternoon, though the cold airmass lingers in the region.
Saturday, a Northern Plains-based front enters the Upper Peninsula, bring system snow from west through east starting in the midmorning hours. Saturday night following frontal passage, the lake effect snow machine restarts over the northwest winds belts, continuing into Sunday night.
A wintry-dominant weather pattern results in waves of system and lake effect-produced precipitation over the U.P. next week.
