More light snow fell across the Upper Peninsula Wednesday, adding another quarter to half of inch of snow to the region. We’ll look for that to continue tonight, with lake effect snows picking up again, which is why lake effect snow advisories and warnings have been issued for some of our counties.
Advisories are in effect for Baraga, Houghton, Keewanaw, Ontonagon, and Gogebic counties until 7pm Thursday, where 6-12 inches of snow are possible through that time. Warnings are out for Alger and Northern Schoolcraft counties until 10am Friday, where 10-16 inches of snow are possible through that time. Lows will bottom out in the low and mid teens, with breezy northwest around 10 to 15 miles per hour.
Thursday will feature more snow, wind, and cold, as lake effect snow continues to fall. Highs will top off between the mid and upper teens, as northwest winds remain brisk at 15 to 20 miles per hour. Tomorrow night, snow activity will taper off to a few flurries the later we go into the evening. Low temps will fall into the single digits, while winds weaken out of the west at 5 to 10 miles per hour. Friday is expected to be partly cloudy, and the last day of our recent trend of “January-like” temps.
