StormTeam Outlook: Saturday, March, 25th
Things Could Get Slick Tonight
It's a gray and blustery start to the weekend, but the potential of icy precipitation has caused the National Weather Service to issue a Winter Weather Advisory for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Iron County in Wisconsin for tonight.
A few isolated scattered pockets of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow, will develop during the overnight hours causing some roads to become slick by tomorrow morning, especially in the counties along Lake Superior. Temperatures dropping down into the upper 20s could create a thin layer of ice in a few locations, so be careful heading out tonight!
As the storm system responsible for the wintry mix chances weakens, precipitation will come to an end tomorrow. However, the clouds will linger as temperatures climb into the upper 30s to mid 40s. This will quickly thaw out any ice that has formed from the previous night.
Eventually, a frontal boundary will sweep through the Northland for the start of the week. This will create westerly winds that will allow for more sunshine. And to top it off, the spring-like temperatures will return as highs climb into the mid 40s to mid 50s through the middle of the week.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the start to your weekend!
