As we enter the final week before Christmas, the 7&4 Storm Team is watching two different periods for snow that could impact travel around the region.
The first is Thursday night into early Friday. Light snow will develop after sunset Thursday evening into Friday morning with a widespread 2-4" of snowfall forecasted across all of Northern Michigan which could impact the Friday morning commute. While not a big storm by any means, it will be enough to make the roads sloppy through Friday.
Another concern is Sunday. There are still a lot of questions with what exactly will happen, but it appears that low pressure will track towards the area carrying with it snow. While the exact track/strength of this system is still in question, there is increasing belief that accumulating snow will fall over parts of Northern Michigan to close out the weekend on Sunday.It may be a case where Southern Michigan gets the heaviest snow, but any northward jog in this system could great affect snow amounts locally. It's definitely something those with travel plans should be aware of.
High temperatures will remain in the 20's to near 30F before falling Monday back into the teens.
