Northern Michigan dodges a weather bullet

Just a few flurries in the forecast for Northern Michigan while the Central and Eastern U.S. receive inches of rain and/or snow.

Low pressure over Ohio will weaken and re-form over the east coast. As it travels south of us, we will see some flurries touched off in parts of the Central Lower, and also in parts of the Northern Lower, especially lake effect locations, as the system pushes east.

Scattered flurries will linger throughout the day Monday and into the start of your Tuesday as well. Most will remain dry, and for the few who see any accumulation it will be light.

Quite the opposite for those in the south, who have received 2-4+" of rainfall and those in the midwest-some who have seen 17" of snow in the past 48 hours! This low pressure has caused hazardous road conditions, flight delays, and school closings throughout the Central and Eastern U.S. If you are headed out traveling to these areas use caution and double check flight times.

High pressure will move in for the remainder of the work week. Expect some sunshine Tuesday afternoon and for the pleasant weather to continue through Saturday. We'll also see a bit of a warm-up, with highs today in the mid 30s getting up into the low and mid 40s come Friday.

We are watching a low pressure system arriving later Saturday. With lows in the 20s, it looks to bring wintry mix Saturday night into Sunday, changing over to rain showers Sunday. It may cause some slick roads Sunday morning, so we'll continue to keep you updated.
