...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 SPREADING INTO SOUTH CENTRAL UPPER MICHIGAN AFTER MIDNIGHT
TONIGHT. THE 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 MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO RAIN TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING OVER
THE EAST HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN AND OVER THE WEST HALF OF UPPER
MICHIGAN NEAR THE LAKE SUPERIOR SHORE. MEANWHILE...TEMPERATURES WILL
STAY COLD ENOUGH FOR SNOW TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY OVER MOST OF
THE INTERIOR WEST HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN. 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.
