WINTER STORM WARNING EXTENDED UNTIL 8 PM EDT MONDAY…
Including the cities of Newberry, Escanaba, Gladstone, Manistique, and Seney.
Snow will fall heaviest into early this evening.
Additional snow accumulations of 7 to 10 inches are expected through Monday afternoon. As the snow diminishes for a time this evening, the snow will mix with light freezing rain, leading to a light glaze of ice. Though most of the snow will occur tonight, additional moderate snow and blowing snow is expected on Monday and therefore the warning was extended. Travel will be very difficult to impossible, especially on those roads not plowed.
As a result, travel is strongly discouraged. Winds gusting as high as 30 to 40 mph will cause areas of blowing and drifting snow, leading to brief white-out conditions at times. The strongest winds and most significant blowing snow will occur along the Bay of Green Bay, including the city of Menominee.
