Special Statement
Statement as of 03:18 CST le 23 novembre 2014

...Rain tonight followed by a quick transition to snow with moderate snow accumulations expected Monday and Monday night...

A quickly developing low pressure system will track across the upper Great Lakes tonight through Monday night. Precipitation will fall as rain across all of Upper Michigan this evening...with the heaviest rainfall over the east half of Upper Michigan. As the low pressure system passes near The Straits of Mackinac early Monday morning...cold air will filter across western Upper Michigan and transition the rain to snow. Snow is expected at Ironwood after midnight tonight...at Iron Mountain and Marquette by late Monday morning...and at Newberry by late Monday afternoon. Once the snow begins it will be very wet and fall moderately at times...creating slushy conditions on area roadways. The afternoon and evening commute on Monday will likely be affected. Additionally...strong north to northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph will be possible into Monday evening resulting in blowing snow and lake enhanced snow near Lake Superior.

The snow will gradually diminish late Monday night into Tuesday morning. At this time...total snow amounts on Monday and Monday night of 3 to 5 inches are expected over much of Upper Michigan with higher amounts over much of western and north central Upper Michigan due to lake enhanced snow.

Stay tuned for later forecasts and possible advisories or warnings for this incoming winter weather system.
