Snow tapers off late Tuesday as below normal trend in temperatures continues

A couple more inches of snow will fall on top of what are already large piles that keep building.

It was certainly nice to see a beautiful blue sky Monday, but that has been replaced with some light snow Tuesday.

We are adding an inch or two of snowfall Tuesday to what are already large piles hanging on across Northern Michigan. While the roads may end up a bit slick Tuesday, we are not forecasting much more than an inch or two of accumulation. The majority of the snow will wind down mid-Tuesday afternoon with a few lingering flurries into evening.

The rest of the week looks quiet for a change of pace, with some sunshine intermingled with a few clouds both Ash Wednesday and also Thursday. Another round of light snow will pass Friday, but even then, light amounts are expected.

Daytime highs will continue the long winter trend of remaining below normal. Normal high temperatures for early March across Northern Michigan are in the 30F-35F degree range. Instead, we expect teens Thursday, 20's Friday, and low-30's Friday which is closer to average, but we then drop back into the 20's for the weekend, which at this point looks dry across Northern Michigan.
