Storms to disrupt travel plans across Upper Midwest

Thunderstorms, some severe, developed late last night and this evening will sweep across the Upper Peninsula, and are expected to bring downpours, large hail, and damaging winds, disrupting travel plans and outdoor activities across the region.


Sunshine and warm temps were a huge part of our Wednesday, making it feel like a pleasant summer afternoon. However, major changes are on the way through the night last night and this evening.

Last night some storms produced heavy rainfall. Low temps fell to the upper-50s and lower-60s, while southwest winds blow at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

Moving into today, storms will develop during the late afternoon hours, bringing along with them a severe weather. Highs will reach the upper-70s and lower-80s, while south winds will blow between 10 to 20 miles per hour. Storm advisories were issued Monday for School Craft County, and an urban flooding warning was issued late last night for Menominee County.

Tomorrow night the main wave of storms should be gone, but scattered showers will hang around. Lows are expected to drop to the lower-50s, with winds out of the west at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

Rain chances show up again on early Friday, before the cold front sweeps through bringing clearer skies and cooler temps.
