A rare break in the unrelenting winter weather

Quiet and at times sunny weather will prevail over Northern Michigan much of this week into Saturday.

Northern Michigan is in the midst of perhaps the quietest stretch of weather since late November or early December with several consecutive days with little if any snow and some rare winter sunshine.

The main storm track across the United States has shifted well south of Northern Michigan targeting the Southern Great Lakes and areas along the East Coast with snow and ice.

In fact, the next in a series of winter storm systems will track across Southern Michigan Tuesday night into early Wednesday leaving a 4-6" area of snow from Port Huron west through Detroit/Ann Arbor back into Chicago if you have travel there. The far northern edge of this storm may brush locations along/south of US-10 including Clare/Mt. Pleasant and Big Rapids even Ludington with up to an inch of snow Tuesday night. Further north, it remains quiet.

Outside of a few flurries, there really is not a chance for any accumulating snow until perhaps Sunday, and even then, there are still questions as to the exact track that system will take. Sunshine will occasionally peek through from today through Saturday. This will also allow people to clean up from the recent snow and wind and for the road conditions to improve with melting and no additional snow on top of it.
