This morning, a storm system is moving through the region with the first round of snow. It’s wet heavy snow creating slushy road conditions. This round clears out around midday. There will be a break for several hours this afternoon. Then, an upper-level low in the jetstream will dig into the region bringing colder air. This will kick off our second round being lake effect snow this evening. It will expand across the west and northern half of the U.P. through tomorrow afternoon. For today plan on wet slushy road conditions with winds becoming breezy. The impacts will be greater tomorrow with powdery snow and patchy white-out conditions from gusty winds near Lak Superior. Northwest winds will gust around 40-45mph, which could also cause lakeshore flooding and some power outages. Additional snow amounts through tomorrow evening range 8″-12″ in the west, 6-12″ in the east, 1-3″ in the south, and 6″-12″ in the north-central. Totals could range from 12-18″ in some isolated higher elevations.
