Icy roads, a cool down, and snow for northern Michigan
Mon, 13 Jan 2014 01:35:05 GMT —
Northern Michigan has gotten a bit of a break the past couple of days with warmer weather - however, a cool down is in store for us.
Low pressure will pass to the north of us in Canada, with a warm front through Michigan Sunday night and its cold front through Monday.
Temperatures Sunday were in the 30s and low 40s, and will remain in the low 30s overnight into Monday morning thanks to the warm front.
We'll still see scattered freezing drizzle, sleet, and wintry mix throughout the region, and that may make roads icy for you on the Monday morning commute.
Monday morning we'll still see those scattered areas of drizzle and wintry mix, and we'll hit our highs early on in the day. High temps will once again be in the mid and upper 30s to about 40 degrees, and fall throughout the day as the cold front passes. Temps will drop to the low 30s in the afternoon, so we'll see a changeover to scattered snow showers by dinnertime.
Accumulations will be light, maybe an inch if that. Keep in mind the dropping temperatures will become cold enough to freeze the light amounts of precipitation we do get, causing icy roads.
Tuesday a low pressure system crosses through southern Michigan, bringing 1-4" of snow throughout our viewing area, more for lake effect locations as they see snow into Wednesday. Thursday will then bring our next round of snow showers.
