The winter rumblings will most likely continue

Howling winds caused problems across the region over President’s Day weekend. Sporting events have been canceled from Friday evening in some cases. Blizzard conditions intensified along the immediate shore of Lake Superior, closing M-28 between Chocolay Township and Munising. High-level vehicles were banned from crossing the Mackinac Bridge all day Sunday, including loaded trailers of snowmobiles, tractor-trailers and other utility vehicles.

For the Keweenaw Peninsula, the event is not over. A slow-moving winter storm is developing and could eventually bring heavy snowfall to the area. Until tonight, forecasters predict between 6 and 10 inches. Five to eight more are possible late tomorrow. The largest quantities are expected south of the M-38, at least today.

When the snow stops, another wave of arctic air sets in. High temperatures are expected to struggle to break out of the single digits later this week. They will stay in the teens apart from Saturday for the rest of the month. Overnight lows will flirt with zero degrees and below. Keweenaw Report will keep you informed of any resulting closures and cancellations.
