...Slippery travel possible at times into Friday along with gusty
south winds...

A wintry mix of freezing drizzle and snow will continue over the
higher terrain of central Upper Michigan through most of the night.
Late tonight into Friday morning, light snow and freezing drizzle
will begin to affect more of Upper Michigan. Eventually the wintry
mix of precipitation will change to mainly rain Friday afternoon
as temperatures rise above freezing. However, there may be enough
cold air lingering to result in a mix of rain and snow over far
western Upper Michigan and also over eastern sections of Upper
Michigan. Though snow and ice amounts will remain light through
Friday, untreated roads will remain slippery. If traveling, be
prepared for changing road conditions.

In addition, strong and gusty south winds are expected late tonight
into Friday as a warm front crosses the region. Wind gusts up to
40 mph are possible, especially near Lake Superior from Marquette
to Grand Marais and Whitefish Point. The strong winds may result
in difficult travel for higher profile vehicles, especially on
west to east oriented roads.
