Bundle up for Monday and Tuesday!

Cold air will once again hit northern Michigan - giving us a brutally cold start to the work week.
Low pressure was over Lake Huron Sunday night, moving eastward, and causing light lake effect snow showers. We will see these continue through Monday, but with light accumulations along Lake Michigan - most will see less than an inch or two, but keep in mind lake effect is highly localized and some areas may see a bit more.
What you'll notice stepping outside Monday is how cold it is! Despite seeing a little sun between the clouds, most of us will have afternoon highs in the single digits and low teens. Winds will be out of the northwest at 5-15mph, and create wind chills closer to 0 to -20 degrees.
A reminder when it's this cold - bring your pets indoors, and limit your own time outside.
Monday night we'll see temperatures drop below 0 for most locations, anywhere from -5 to -20 degrees is possible, so Tuesday will be another morning to really layer up heading out the door! We'll see some sunshine Tuesday thanks to high pressure, but even with many highs in the teens wind chills will still make it feel between 0 to -20.
Wednesday brings the arrival of our next system - so we'll get temps back into the 20s but also get our next rounds of snow. Scattered snow showers will continue through Thursday and into Friday as a clipper system (fast moving low pressure) passes through the area. Snow looks to be scattered and light. It will be breezy to end the work week, so remember to give yourself extra travel time and keep your headlights on.
We stay around 20 degrees and see a mix of sun and scattered snow heading into the weekend.
