ABC 10 Weather 4.15.14

It was not warm at all today. Not one bit.  That may be the understatement of this young Spring season as wind chills were in the lower teens and upper single digits all day.  The bright spot during the day was the few peaks of sunshine we saw, that helped to melt the 3 to 6 inches of snow we received over the pass 24 hours. By tonight, skies will continue to clear as overnight lows drop into record territory.  Temperatures bottom out in the lower and middle teens, which are right around the records for tonight.  Winds lighten tonight and become almost calm.

Wednesday brings cloudy skies with a lot more snow late.  Highs return to the 30’s and winds increase again to 10 to 15 mph, but now from the ESE.  Watch out for snow accumulations between 1 to 2 inches during the day.  By tomorrow night snow showers really begin to intensify across the viewing area.

It seems that it we will have accumulations around 3 to 6 inches during the night bringing storm totals between 4 to 8 inches with the heaviest snow expected in Central and Western U.P. around Marquette to Ironwood and on into the Keweenaw Peninsula.

Overnight lows will be milder however, as temps drop off to lower 30’s and winds stay breezy at 10 to 20 mph from the SE.  We will push above the freezing mark again on Thursday, reaching the 30’s, while seeing even more snow showers.
