Northern Michigan may have some icy roads this week

Northern Michigan will see a warm up and then a cool down causing some slick road possibilities this week.
High pressure will give us another dry day Monday with some clouds and some sun, but things change in the evening.
Our next system, low pressure in the plains, will begin to approach us. A warm front will touch off scattered wintry mix and snow showers for the Central Lower first in the evening, then spreading northward into the Northern Lower during the late night hours along the Lake Michigan side and inland.
Tuesday's morning commute may be icy, and some may be seeing snow showers falling as they head out the door. As afternoon highs reach the mid 30s, expect some rain to mix into the snow too, especially as you head home from work or school. The warm, southerly air keeps us mild overnight into Wednesday - lows stay in the low 30s for most. The warm front won't quite have reached the E. U.P. yet, so some lows may drop into the 20s there and in the tip of the mitt.
Wednesday will be rainy with highs around 40 degrees. If you have errands to run, get them done by Wednesday.
Thursday the low pressure will have pushed eastward - along with the cold front - and temps will being to drop. Highs will be back into the mid 30s and lows drop to about 20. We'll see a change from rain back to wintry mix, and could see some of the roads turn icy later Thursday.
Friday into the weekend will bring another cold front through, causing scattered snow showers. Temperatures are down in the 20s, lows in the teens - feeling a lot more like December! We may have accumulation, especially in the lake effect locations through the weekend.
We'll keep you updated with all of the weather going on this week!
