Pre-winter storm bringing cold, snow to Michigan

Posted: Updated:

A cold weather system is bearing down on Michigan, with temperatures forecast to drop into the 20s in wide areas of the state and up to 6 inches of snow predicted for parts of the Upper Peninsula.

The National Weather Service says readings will drop after midday Monday and says rain and snow will fall in much of Michigan.

Highs that pushed into the upper 40s Sunday are expect to reach only the 30s by Tuesday.

The weather service forecasts some of the heaviest snow near Munising along the Upper Peninsula's Lake Superior shoreline, with about 4-6 inches accumulating by Monday afternoon. One to 3 inches could fall in parts of northern Lower Michigan.

High winds have been sweeping Michigan, with a 53 miles-per-hour gust Saturday night near South Haven.
