Snow to affect eastern areas, gusty winds for all Tuesday

A storm system affecting much of the eastern U.S. will brush by Northeast Michigan Tuesday. Snow has been hammering areas from Ohio to Tennessee today, even metro Detroit has picked up some snow, and severe thunderstorms happened in the mid-Atlantic states.

As the main storm system slowly moves toward the northeast, a band of snow will back onto the Lake Huron shoreline Tuesday morning and periods of snow will continue into the afternoon. Snowfall amounts will be greatest for the areas shaded in yellow — eastern Presque Isle County, eastern Alpena County and eastern Alcona county.

  • 2-4 inches: Presque Isle Township, Alpena, Ossineke, Harrisville
  • 0.5-2 inches: Millersburg, Hillman, Glennie, Tawas City

Winds will remain blustery through Tuesday. Strong winds from the NNW will be sustained at 15-25 mph and higher gusts will be possible. Wednesday will start breezy with winds at 15-20 mph. By Wednesday night, winds should relax, becoming 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Chances of snow will be greatest in the morning and afternoon. Gusty winds will create a noticeable wind chill, making the air feel colder than the actual temperature. Early-morning temperatures will begin in the middle 20s. Afternoon highs will be near 33 degrees with wind chills in the 20s. Evening temperatures will get close to 30 degrees.

Wednesday: Brighter and warmer, mostly sunny. Predawn temperatures will dip to the upper 20s. Temperatures will rise to the middle 30s in the late-morning. Afternoon highs will reach about 41 degrees. Evening temperatures will cool to the middle/lower 20s.
