30s expected for the first time since mid-January
Mon, 17 Feb 2014 21:14:22 GMT —
Winter Weather Advisory overnight for all of northern Michigan. That means snow...up to 4 inches...and gusty wind over 20 mph. A winter weather advisory is really a travel advisory. It's issued because of slippery roadways, and usually it's not the kind of condition that will cause damage.
Low temperatures tonight will be between 8 and 18 degrees. With any wind, remember that wind chills will fall below zero.
Tuesday we should get some sunshine. Look for breaks in the clouds and highs in the 30s. We haven't seen widespread 30s on the map since a mild spell in mid-January. Light wind for most areas, but it will be breezy near Ludington. Tuesday night, some scattered light snow.
Wednesday we're expecting more sunshine and more highs in the 30s. Nice day. Light wind.
Keep an eye on Thursday. That's when we will see a mix of rain and freezing rain. Highs will climb above freezing. It may reach 40 degrees in a few neighborhoods. When we get precipitation and temperatures from 32 to 42 degrees, we often get icy roads because of the freezing rain...rain that freezes on the roadways and trees and power lines.
