Mix of rain & snow Thursday

A winter storm will develop tonight and move thru the Midwest...including northern Michigan. It starts with snow spreading across the region from the southwest overnight. North of Highway M-72 2 to 4 inches of snow are possible.

In the Upper Peninsula, mostly snow will fall Thursday so the totals will add up to over 6 inches for the storm in parts of the U.P.

Early Thursday in the Lower Peninsula look for a mix of rain, freezing rain, and snow. As the temperatures climb above freezing, that mix becomes mostly rain. Up to 1/2 inch of rain is possible in the L.P. thru the day. Highs will be range from low 30s in the U.P. to upper 30s in the central L.P.

Thursday night as temperatures fall again, look for snow showers anywhere in northern Michigan. Early Friday light snow or rain or freezing rain will be left behind, but any precipitation will end in the morning. Then look for a little sun thru the clouds.

Wind Thursday will come from the south and turn to the northwest Friday. Speeds will be 5 to 15 mph, but gust over 20 at times.
