Snow near Lake Michigan and another cold spell on the way
Thu, 16 Jan 2014 14:57:47 GMT —
Snow remains in the forecast through Friday night, with the bulk of it near Lake Michigan. Another cold spell is also on the way next week.
Low pressure passing over the Great Lakes will touch off light snow, but with south winds right off of Lake Michigan Thursday, parts of Mackinac County west of Naubinway along US-2 will see the worst of the snow with isolated spots picking up 6" or more of snow with blowing/drifting there. Another area of concern is from the Leelanau Peninsula southward along the Lake Michigan shoreline including Frankfort/Manistee/Ludington where 2-4" of snow will likely fall by Thursday evening with some blowing/drifting.
Lake effect snow showers will continue Friday before they taper off early Saturday. We start the weekend on a quiet note with highs near 20F.
The latest look at weather model data paints another bitter cold scenario next week with highs Monday around 10F but dropping into the single digits next Tuesday/Wednesday along with sub-zero nights.
