A Central Plains-based low approaches the Western Great Lakes region and Upper Michigan Monday night, spinning up widespread rain, freezing rain and wet snow over the region through Tuesday. The wintry mix transitions to wet snow in the U.P. into Tuesday afternoon -- 0.25″ ice accumulations and up to 6″ snow accumulations (west) possible by the end of Tuesday.
Snow chances continue Wednesday through the lake effect, then diminishing towards early Thursday. However, a strong system from the Southern Plains hooks northeastward towards Upper Michigan and the Great Lakes region as a whole -- moderate to heavy snowfall possible.
