Accumulating snow continues Saturday night into Sunday morning
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Emmet-Cheboygan-Charlevoix-Antrim-Otsego counties until 7AM Sunday. Accumulating snow will lead to slippery road conditions and reduced visibility.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Leelanau-Benzie-Grand Traverse-Kalkaska-Manistee-Wexford-Missaukee-Mason-Lake-Osceola-Oceana-Newaygo-Mecosta-Clare-Isabella-Gratiot counties until 9AM Sunday. Accumulating snow, with locally heavy pockets of snow near Lake Michigan, will lead to hazardous road conditions and reduced visibility.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Luce Co. until 1AM Sunday. Additional light to moderate snow will lead to slippery road conditions and reduced visibility this evening and through the first half of the overnight.
Low pressure (currently over Iowa Saturday afternoon) slowly tracks through the N. Lower overnight, before exiting the region Sunday morning. In the meantime, widespread light to moderate snow will continue this evening into tonight - slowly piling up across northern Michigan. Brief pockets of heavy snow are possible, especially towards the Lake Michigan shoreline (south of Leelanau Co.), as subtle lake enhancement takes place throughout this evening and parts of the overnight. All in all, a general 3-6" of additional accumulation is expected in most spots across the N. Lower through Sunday morning. For those south of Leelanau county along Lake Michigan, it is not out of question for some to see locally higher amounts from the lake enhancement. Across the E. Upper, a general 2-4" is expected this evening and tonight - which will still lead to slick roads. Low temperatures fall into the single digits across the E. Upper, as winds begin to shift to the north. In the N. Lower, lows bottom out between the upper single digits to upper 10s.
Snow works out of the Great Lakes in a north to south fashion Sunday, as low pressure exits the region and a dry, northerly flow takes over throughout the day. Isolated pockets of lake effect will hang around, but any additional accumulations look to be minimal at this point. Skies remain cloudy most of the day, but some sunshine is possible by the late afternoon - mainly across the interior spots of northern Michigan. High temperatures are cold tomorrow, only topping out in the single digits to 10s for the most part. A few lower 20s is possible along and south of US-10.
For the most part, Sunday night into Monday will be quiet across northern Michigan - only isolated spots of lake effect around under a westerly flow. Temperatures rise a few degrees Monday, but once again, top out in the 10s.
Throughout the rest of the week, below normal temperatures and on & off chances for snow are the theme. Our late 'January Thaw' is becoming a distant thought, and will be especially true by the end of next week.
