An upper level disturbance over the Great Lakes region helps continue the snow shower production over Upper Michigan Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Steered by strong northerly winds from 10-20 mph, road visibility can reduce below one mile at times due to blowing and drifting snow. An additional 1-2″ of snow is possible over the Western U.P. Highlands through Wednesday morning. Adjust driving speed as needed due to slick road conditions. In addition, local river flooding plus icy patches are possible in areas of Houghton, Baraga, Marquette and Iron counties.
