While the severe cold is gone, winter continues with more widespread snow expected. Low pressure will quickly move across Wisconsin into Lower Michigan overnight. This will produce a band of heavy, wet snow across the U.P.
Heavy snow fell this morning over parts of southeastern Upper Michigan. An observer in Escanaba reported 5.5 inches of snow as of noon when the snow began diminishing. In Garden Corners, 4.5 inches was reported and Manistique tallied 3 inches.The next band of snow will be more widespread and develop and move quickly across the U.P. this evening and overnight. This time, it appears that the heaviest snow will fall over the central U.P. from parts of Iron County into Marquette County as the low passes eastward through Wisconsin. Four to 7 inches of snow should accumulate over the above areas with the highest totals in the higher terrain of western Marquette County. Elsewhere, a general 3-6 inches of snow should fall. However, in areas of Delta County where the heavier snow fell this morning and then down into Menominee County, rain initially will limit snowfall accumulation. There, look for 1-5 inches of snow with the most in the northern portions of the Counties. Snow will quickly end from west to east later tonight with some flurries possibly lingering in the north and east into Friday morning.
