HAZARDOUS WEATHER...

 * Although mainly light rain or drizzle mixed with freezing rain
   over higher terrain is expected this evening, the precipitation
   will increase again late tonight into Thursday morning.
   Freezing rain is expected over much of western Upper Michigan
   with additional ice accumulations of one-tenth to one-quarter
   of an inch. Higher terrain locations from Ironwood to Copper
   Harbor to Herman that will have temperatures below freezing
   would see the greater ice amounts. In Iron county, the most
   freezing rain and icing will occur over western portions of the
   county, including Iron River.

 * Sleet and snow may mix with the rain and freezing rain late
   tonight into Thursday morning, especially over far western
   Upper Michigan. At this time, only minor snow accumulations
   are expected on Thursday.

IMPACTS...

 * Most of the ice accumulation into Thursday morning will occur
   on elevated surfaces such as trees and power lines.

 * Untreated roads still may develop a thin glaze on them, so
   use caution if traveling especially where air temperatures
   are at or below freezing.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

 * A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet,
   or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.

 * Prepare, plan, and stay informed. Visit www.weather.gov/mqt

Hazardous Weather Outlook

Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Marquette MI
434 PM EDT Wed Apr 26 2017

MIZ001>005-009-010-084-271200-
Keweenaw-Ontonagon-Northern Houghton-Baraga-Marquette-Gogebic-
Iron-Southern Houghton-
434 PM EDT Wed Apr 26 2017 /334 PM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017/

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of western Upper
Michigan and central Upper Michigan.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Wave heights as high as 8 to 12 feet along the western shoreline
of the Keweenaw and areas to the southwest may lead to minor beach
erosion through late tonight.

Freezing rain with some ice accumulation is likely over far
western Upper Michigan tonight as a low pressure system tracks
across the Upper Great Lakes. There could be as much as two tenths
of an inch of ice accumulation tonight. See the latest winter
weather advisory for further details.

Due to the wet conditions over the last couple weeks, if heavy
rain occurs through tonight, there will be elevated stream and
river levels. Heavy rain will also result in ponding of water on
roads and in other low-lying and poor drainage areas. Be aware of
standing water on roads, especially at night.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Freezing rain with some ice accumulation will continue into
Thursday morning as a low pressure system tracks across the Upper
Great Lakes. There could be as much as an additional five
hundredths of an inch of ice accumulation Thursday morning. See
the latest winter weather advisory for further details.

If enough cold air moves in on Thursday, the mixed precipitation
could change to snow into Thursday evening. The greatest chances
for snow accumulation would be over far western Upper Michigan.

Due to the wet conditions over the last couple weeks, if heavy
rain occurs Thursday, there will be elevated stream and river
levels. Heavy rain will also result in ponding of water on roads
and in other low-lying and poor drainage areas. Be aware of
standing water on roads, especially at night.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Any reports of icing, snow and heavy rainfall would be greatly
appreciated.
