... Winter storm possible Monday into Tuesday across Upper
Michigan...

Those planning on traveling across the region, including across
Upper Michigan Monday into Tuesday should pay close attention to
the weather for early next week as a storm system will track
across northern Illinois and lower Michigan Monday into Tuesday.
The axis of heavy, wet system snow and where, or if at all, a
wintry mix of precipitation may bring accumulating ice, will be
highly dependent on the track of the surface low.

While considerable uncertainty remains in the exact track of the
heavier band of system snow, north central Upper Michigan looks
to be the most favorable areas where upslope flow off of Lake
Superior will help enhance snowfall totals. Locations near Lake
Michigan and across the south central could see a wintry mix of
precipitation, which may bring minor ice accumulations. Northeast
to north winds will increase during this time period and allow for
areas of blowing and drifting snow as well.

As this system evolves over the next few days, continue to check
back for the latest forecast!

... Winter storm to impact Upper Michigan with possible heavy snow
Monday into Tuesday...

A low pressure system, expected to deepen over the Central Plains
late Sunday and Sunday night, will then likely track over northern
lower Michigan Monday night and early Tuesday. This deepening
storm system has the potential to dump moderate to heavy snow
across much of Upper Michigan Monday into Tuesday. As of now, it
looks like the heaviest total snowfall will occur over far west
and north central Upper Michigan where lake enhancement and
terrain effects from a northeast wind flow should provide an added
boost to snow totals. Lesser snow amounts appear more likely over
south central Upper Michigan and along Lake Michigan where rain or
possible freezing rain on Monday could limit total snowfall.

Strengthening northeast to north winds, gusting as high as 40 mph
along Lake Superior Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning, will
also cause considerable blowing and drifting of snow.

Those planning travel across Upper Michigan early next week
should stay tuned for further updates on this winter storm system.
