Cold temperatures continue on Wednesday, but no big snow in the near-term
Overall, a rather quiet stretch of weather will take place across northern Michigan throughout the forecast period.
The northern extent of a snow system (bringing plenty of messy weather for southern Michigan and the Ohio Valley) swings through parts of the N. Lower this Wednesday morning, bringing scattered, light snow showers. No impacts are expected and this action is out of the Great Lakes by midday. Lake effect snow is the only story for the second half of the day, but will be light and scattered. Another cold day in-store, with high temperatures ranging from the 10s to lower 20s.
A similar story for Wednesday night, with scattered lake effect snow showers around the Lake Michigan shoreline in the N. Lower and near Whitefish Point in the E. Upper. Again, not expecting many impacts with only light accumulations expected. Low temperatures generally bottom out in the single digits to low 10s.
For Thursday, cold temperatures continue across the north. 10s to lower 20s will be the overall range tomorrow, which is below normal for the second week of February (normal temperatures are in the middle to upper 20s). Outside of scattered lake effect snow showers, another uneventful day takes place.
