Cold in spots Friday night, with quiet conditions most of the extended period
A quiet stretch of weather overtakes northern Michigan for majority of the extended forecast.
Clear skies will be the general theme near and north of the Straits Friday night, allowing temperatures to plummet below zero in many spots in the E. Upper. With a little more cloud coverage in the N. Lower, overnight lows will range in the single digits to lower 10s. Winds turn light and variable.
While still slightly below normal, in terms of temperatures, a pleasant Saturday is in-store. Expect a mixture of sun and clouds throughout the day with just a little more sunshine to the north of the Mighty Mac and more clouds filtering through to the south. Temperatures climb into the upper 10s to middle 20s by the afternoon and winds remain light all day.
A swath of snow tries to reach parts of northern Michigan Sunday, but it appears most of us will stay dry and any snow that does fall will be on the light side (less than an inch). Quiet conditions continue into next week with a moderating trend into the 30s by Tuesday/Wednesday.
