First Serious Winter Storm Eyes Keweenaw

The first major snowstorm of the season is threatening to dump as much as two feet of snow on portions of the Copper Country.

WeatherEye meteorologist Derek Dahlman says the hardest-hit area will probably be the Huron Mountains in eastern Baraga County, but even sheltered areas could receive around a foot.

Northeasterly winds could gust to 50 miles per hour near the windward shore Wednesday morning, causing whiteout driving conditions and shoreline erosion.

A Blizzard Warning has been issued for Keweenaw County beginning at 1:00 am Wednesday. Other areas will be under a Winter Storm Warning, and a Lakeshore Flood Warning takes effect Wednesday at 7:00 am.

As of noon on Tuesday, we’re already receiving weather-related cancellations. Check the list here.
