Upper Peninsula Weather Forecast 1/6-7

Weather Forecast:

After a slight reprieve from the intense cold Tuesday, tonight looks to bring another wave of arctic air to the region, accompanied by a wide variety of winter advisories. Watch out for more snow showers, as the lake effect machine powers up. Low temps will fall close to -10 degrees, with winds becoming more blustery between 15 to 25 miles per hour out of the northwest.

Wednesday will feature more lake effect snow early with major accumulations around Alger and School Craft of 9″+. Temps will be brutal, as highs struggle to rise above 0, with northwest winds continuing at 15 to 25 miles per hour. This will create wind chills near -40 degrees Wednesday morning, and because of that, a wind chill advisories/warnings have been issued for the coverage area from until 1pm tomorrow.

Tomorrow night, winds weaken, but the arctic air holds strong. Lows will drop between -10 to -20, while winds shift to come out of the southwest at 5 to 15 miles per hour. Thursday there will be a bit warmer for us, before a clipper enters later that evening bringing more snow. Stay warm and safe!
