Snow showers will wind down later Tuesday with temperatures Tuesday struggling to reach the freezing mark.

No major storm systems are on the near term horizon but we will continue to deal with some lighter snow showers Tuesday.

Roads in some spots are once again snow covered (at least in parts) of Northern Michigan to kick off our Tuesday. Low pressure sits Watertown, NY Tuesday morning with a chilly north/northwest wind in place locally behind that system. Energy rotating around that low will keep snow showers (enhanced by cold air crossing the Great Lakes) in the forecast Tuesday. A general inch or less for most spots but a few areas could pick up closer to 2" when all is said and done. Temperatures will struggle to reach the freezing mark.

The rest of the week looks quiet. Skies remain mostly cloudy Wednesday with dry weather back in the forecast. Yet another weak system will drop out of Canada Wednesday night into Thursday bringing a few lighter snow showers back to the region.

Thursday through Sunday looks dry and quiet with temperatures by the weekend getting back into the low/mid-40's. As high pressure builds back in there will be a decent amount of sunshine this upcoming weekend including St. Patrick's Day.
