Slippery, drizzly until rain and snow clear out later Friday
Patchy dense fog plus slick road conditions from wintry mix showers until drier weather before New Year’s weekend.
A Northern Plains system brings wintry mixed precipitation over Upper Michigan -- with overnight additions of freezing drizzle and rain to create light icing and a slippery commute Friday morning. Conditions dry out Friday afternoon as the system ejects out of the region, leading to overall pleasant weather New Year’s weekend -- with the exception of a round of light to moderate snow to fall along with the confetti during the New Year’s countdown and then diminishing later Sunday.
Next week, a moisture-rich system from the Southern Plains threatens to bring moderate to heavy rain and snow to impact the U.P. -- followed by an arctic chill.
