Spring weather in holding pattern for now

With April here, many residents are eager for the snow to melt and warmer weather to arrive.

Another chilly start to the day with lake effect snow continuing, but there are a few changes in store.

Conditions remain favorable for lake effect snow as steady northwest winds cross both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan Tuesday into Tuesday night. Any spots that do see snowfall will not have to deal with much accumulation (less than an inch) with snow showers ending Tuesday night as high pressure and drier air build in.

Wednesday is forecasted to be a nice one, with sunshine beaming down on the area as high pressure crosses the state scouring out the clouds, although temperatures will remain a below normal with upper-30's expected.

A weak cold front drops in Thursday, and it will provide just enough of a trigger to touch off a narrow band of rain or snow showers. It will certainly not rain or snow much, but they are possible Thursday.

The weekend is shaping up to start off potentially wet with another storm system sweeping in from the Plains that will lead to a rain/snow mix Saturday.
