The first round of snow with a strong storm system is moving in. Plan on light snow this morning with snow becoming moderate and widespread during the day. Some lake enhanced likely off of Lake Michigan. Snowfall amounts will range from 6″-12″ through this evening. However, snowfall amounts from today through Saturday will easily push two and a half feet of snow in the western and eastern U.P. with lower amounts south. A blizzard is expected tomorrow through Saturday. It will bring dangerous travel conditions. Aside from heavy snow, we’re expecting strong winds. Wind speeds will range from 25-35mph with gusts of 40-60mph. This will cause whiteout conditions and large snow drifts. Avoid travel during this time period! Stay tuned for updates.

Christmas looks a lot better with lingering light snow and colder air.
