The jet stream crests north of Upper Michigan Monday night, leading to a warmer airmass over the region but also serving as a pathway to a powerful spring storm to impact the U.P. through midweek. Precipitation starts as wet snow/sleet Tuesday afternoon. Then, it transitions to sleet and freezing rain Tuesday night. As warm air continues to surge into Upper Michigan Wednesday, the mix transitions to rain and thunderstorms -- especially along south and along the Lake Michigan shore. The system will also produce strong winds gusting over 40 mph. Travel impacts include icy slippery roads, possible power outages, and lakeshore flooding. Ice accumulation can range around a quarter-inch especially in high terrain.
