A brief shot of colder weather will drop in early Wednesday but it won't last long with temperature quickly rebounding back into the 40's by Friday.
After a turbulent start to the week with snow/sleet/freezing rain along with icy roads the weather looks a lot quieter the next couple of days. For Wednesday, a chilly start to the day with single digits and teens. Wednesday will be the coldest day of the week but it won't be all that far from normal with temperatures from the mid-teens to mid-20's by the afternoon. Almost all of the area will end up dry but we can't rule out a few flurries along the Lake Michigan shoreline from the Leelanau Peninsula south.
Quiet Thursday with partly/mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be slightly warmer with a range from 23-33F.
By Friday, a mild southwest flow will be in place allowing temperatures to spike into the 40's and in some spots, mid/upper-40's are a possibility leading to some melting.
Looking ahead into your weekend, it still looks rather quiet with the main storm track shifting north of the area into Canada. That being said, it appears a cold front will drop in Sunday which certainly could kick up a few passing snow showers Sunday.
