      High wind warning effective for portions of Upper Michigan

      A high wind warning will be effective from 8 p.m. tonight until 1 p.m. EST Monday for Alger, Luce, Mackinac and Chippewa Counties as well as a large portion of Lower Michigan. A wind advisory will also be effective for Marquette, Houghton and Keweenaw Counties through the same time period. West to northwest winds to 45 MPH with peak wind gusts to 60 MPH are expected, especially along the Lake Superior shoreline. Any winds in excess of 58 MPH are considered severe and could produce wind damage including downed trees, power lines and temporary power outages. Waves to 22 feet are also expected during this time. Rain will change to snow overnight and early Monday. Although only moderate accumulation of 2-4" is expected in the northwest wind-snow belts, untreated roadways could become slick and visibility will be low. Our new weekend meteorologist, Dan Giroux will have details tonight at 11! We'll start the work week together on your TV6 Morning Show!
