Quick hitting round of snow Monday evening then warmer
Mon, 17 Feb 2014 15:06:04 GMT —
A quick round of snow will swirl across Northern Michigan Monday evening ushering in a rarity this winter, some milder temperatures much of this week.
An area of low pressure will cross the Southern Great Lakes region Monday, but not before dragging a round of snow across much of Michigan. Snow will develop around the Ludington/Manistee areas first a little after 2 p.m. and then lift northeastward across the rest of Northern Michigan into the evening hours. Once the snow starts, it could for a time become heavy leading to a slow go on area roads. It appears a general 2-4" of snow will fall across Northern Michigan with slightly lighter amounts over the Eastern U.P. and parts of Northeast Lower Michigan. The majority of the snow will end after midnight early Tuesday morning.
Temperatures then actually warm some with 30's in the forecast Tuesday through Thursday. Quiet weather is forecasted Tuesday into Wednesday although a few flurries can't be ruled out Tuesday.
The next storm system that we are keeping a watchful eye on arrives later Thursday. With temperatures forecasted to be in the mid/upper-30's, it looks like precipitation type issues will come into play with anything from snow and sleet to rain or freezing rain a possibility. The 7&4 Storm Team will sort out the details on that as we get a bit closer.
Just keep in mind that the weather will deteriorate Monday late afternoon and evening and you may need some extra time to get to your destination if traveling.
