Out like a lion for March, in like a lion for April in Upper Michigan as a Central Plains system brings moderate to heavy rain, sleet and snow plus powerful wind -- before all stormy elements gradually subside for a sunnier finish Saturday late afternoon. Snow amounts from Friday evening to Saturday afternoon can range from 10-15″ along the areas near the Wisconsin border and the central and eastern counties -- lighter amounts over the Copper Country and South Central U.P. In addition to heavy accumulating snow, winds strengthen to gale force Saturday with gusts around 40-50 mph. Limited visibility from blowing snow, lakeshore flooding, tree damage and power outages all possible before the snow and wind taper off later Saturday.
A mostly sunny start Sunday clouds up later as a fast-moving clipper system brushes light to moderate snow over the region through early Monday.
