The quick shot of cold air and lake effect snow is dwindling down and will give way to sunshine and some warmer weather beginning Wednesday.
Lake effect snow totals were kept in check with the highest amount reported into the 7&4 Storm Team Forecast Center of 6.5" which was in Kalkaska County at South Boardman. Locations around Grawn and also Buckley picked up nearly 4" of snow since midday Monday. Based on radar, it appears the heaviest amounts came out of Luce County north of Newberry.
High pressure over the Central Plains will sweep in drier air which combined with a shift in wind from the northwest more westerly and eventually southwesterly will disrupt and being an end to the lake effect snow by late Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures Tuesday will struggle to reach 30F in places and it will be without question the coldest day of this week. As skies attempt to clear some Tuesday night, temperatures will freefall down into the low/mid-20's with a few teens in our colder inland locations.
Warmer temperatures quickly race in Wednesday and that will go hand in hand with ample sunshine as temps rise back to 40F. A weak frontal boundary Thursday into Friday may bring a few light rain showers, but at this point, it does not look like anything to write home about. Daytime highs will remain in the 40's all the way into early next week.
