...Winter Storm Possible Monday into Tuesday across Upper

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 tracks from the
Central Plains across Lower Michigan. 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, far west and north central Upper
Michigan appear most likely to see the heaviest snowfall totals
due to lake enhancement of snow as a result of upslope northeast
to north winds off of Lake Superior. Locations near Lake Michigan
and across south central Upper Michigan could see a wintry mix of
precipitation, which may bring minor ice accumulations. Northeast
to north winds will increase during this time period, creating
areas of blowing and drifting snow as well.

Stay tuned this weekend for further updates on this evolving
winter storm.
