winter mix then moderate to heavy snow through Thursday


A low pressure system over southwestern Wisconsin continues to direct mixed precipitation over upper Michigan, at times with moderate to heavy intensity. After exiting the system towards the eastern Great Lakes region, a push of cold northerly air sweeps across the UP with precipitation ranging from freezing rain/sleet/snow/non-freezing rain to moderate wet snow and sometimes abundant until Thursday. Be careful as this will produce poor visibility on muddy and slippery roads. In addition to travel hazards, the combination of accumulation of wet snow, ice, and high winds could lead to power outages, trees, and even property damage.
