Strong Storm System This Weekend

We’re monitoring the potential for a strong system that is expected to impact northern Michigan late Saturday and into Sunday. Being this far out there are still plenty of unknowns, but strong winds and a wintry mix will likely impact travel across northern Michigan. Continue to monitor the forecast for later updates on this system! Read More >

Overview

On Sunday, January 21st, an area of low pressure moved out of the Central Plains and by Tuesday, January 23rd had moved through the lower peninsula of Michigan. Two air masses, one from the south, pushed warm air aloft, overrunning the cold air from the north, producing freezing rain, snow and sleet over portions of northern lower and eastern upper Michigan.
