...MODERATE SNOW EXPECTED OVER MUCH OF UPPER MICHIGAN LATE TONIGHT
INTO TUESDAY...

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVING INTO THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES WILL RESULT
IN SNOW...POSSIBLY MIXED WITH RAIN...SPREADING INTO SOUTH CENTRAL
UPPER MICHIGAN AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. SNOW WILL THEN MOVE OVER THE
REST OF UPPER MICHIGAN ON TUESDAY MORNING. WARM AIR WRAPPING AROUND
THE LOW WILL ALLOW FOR THE SNOW TO GRADUALLY MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO
RAIN OVER THE EAST HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN AND OVER THE WEST HALF NEAR
THE LAKE SUPERIOR SHORE. THE PRECIPITATION WILL DIMINISH OVER SOUTH
CENTRAL UPPER MICHIGAN DURING THE DAY. MEANWHILE...TEMPERATURES WILL
STAY COLD ENOUGH FOR SNOW TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY OVER MOST OF
THE INTERIOR WEST HALF. TOTAL SNOWFALL BY THE TIME THE SNOW
DIMINISHES ON TUESDAY NIGHT WILL RANGE FROM 3 TO 5 INCHES OVER THE
WEST HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN...TO 1 TO 3 INCHES OVER THE EAST HALF.
THIS SNOW WILL BE WET AND HEAVY SO SLIPPERY TRAVEL CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED.

CONFIDENCE IS HIGH THAT SNOW WILL OCCUR ON TUESDAY...BUT THERE IS
STILL UNCERTAINTY ON WHERE THE HEAVIEST SNOW WILL FALL. BE SURE TO
MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS.
