Justin Liles: Winds weaken later tonight
There is no question that the weather story today is the winds. Winds have been blowing snow all over the place today. Northwest winds have reached as high as 40 mph. This has created lake effect for the U.P. of Michigan. A Winter Weather Advisory is still in place for these areas until 1am Thursday morning. An additional 1-4” of snow is possible. Blustery conditions will eventually wrap up shortly after midnight.
Temperatures will gradually warm up through the end of the week and into the weekend. Another round of snow is likely late Friday into Saturday. Most of the snow will likely stay north of the Iron Range. As much as 2-4” is possible. The farther south you go from this area the less snow you will have. Some light freezing rain is possible in northern Wisconsin Friday night too. Saturday will again be cold followed by a much warmer Sunday.
A chance of flurries before midnight. Partly cloudy, with a low around 5. Blustery, with a northwest wind 15 to 20 mph decreasing to 5 to 10 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 35 mph.
