Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A strong northwesterly wind component sets up following cold frontal passage in the U.P. Sunday morning. Lake effect snowfall is expected along the NW wind belts in the morning and then extending further inland into midday. Sustained winds of 15-25 mph are expected but gusts can exceed 40 mph in some areas. This creates potential for blowing snow, icy roads and poor visibility. Accumulation can exceed 2″ in some areas. Lakeshore flooding, beach erosion also expected along county shorelines from Ontonagon to Luce.
Drier air looks to gradually improve conditions starting out west into the afternoon. High pressure then builds over the U.P. starting next week with mostly sunny skies anticipated and even a warming trend following Election Day Tuesday.
