Heavy snow slams Southern Michigan Friday with a little snow possible locally Sunday
Northern Michigan is missing out on heavy snow that is slamming the far southern portions of the state Friday. Locally, we have what appears to be a pretty quiet stretch of weather with a slow warm up on tap.
Heavy snow will continue Friday within a county or two of the Indiana/Ohio border (well south of us) mainly along/south of I-94 across Southern Michigan where the commute is a slow one with 6-10" of snow possible there. Heavy snow at both Detroit and Chicago has led to some flight cancellations in both Traverse City and at Pellston Friday.
A few scattered snow showers west of Traverse City will diminish on a north/northeast wind. We may some system snow getting as far north as highway M-55 Friday morning but across our viewing area, minimal if any accumulation is expected although I suppose 1-2" is possible from Big Rapids over to Mt. Pleasant. Temperatures will climb into the upper-teens/low-20's under a partly sunny sky north to overcast skies south.
The weekend looks pleasant for the most part although there are increasing signs that some light snow will try to work into Northern Michigan Sunday. Dry under a mix of sun/clouds Saturday with temperatures again in the low/mid-20's to kick off the weekend. Light winds.
There appears to be another storm system lifting north into part of Michigan Sunday. Snow is possible in Northern Lower Michigan (mainly south of a line from Traverse City-Rogers City) Sunday morning where an inch or two of snow may fall. Still some questions if that system will indeed lift this far north, but we are going to put some light snow in the forecast for the above mentioned areas Sunday morning.
Quiet early next week.
