Snow gradually ends Sunday, but below normal temperatures continue

After widespread snow encompassed most of northern Michigan the first half of the weekend, we'll see a well-needed break in the action by the end of the day.

Snow exits out of the region Sunday in a northwest to southeast fashion, as low pressure (the one that has brought the snow) exits out of the Great Lakes gradually. Additional accumulations this morning will be light, but roads will still be messy/snow-covered - give yourself some extra time, especially in the morning. Some lake effect snow showers hang around throughout the day, but impacts will be minimal from them. While skies generally stay mostly cloudy, a few breaks in the clouds are expected towards sunset. Temperatures don't climb much today, only topping out in the single digits to upper 10s - normal highs for early February are in the middle to upper 20s. A north-northwest wind at 5-15 mph keeps wind chills near or below 0 degrees all day long.

For the most part, Sunday night into Monday will be quiet across northern Michigan - only isolated spots of lake effect around under a westerly flow. Temperatures rise a few degrees Monday, but once again, top out in the 10s.

A surge of moisture tries to spread snow into the region Monday night, but the bulk of activity will stay well to our south. A few snow showers are possible Monday night, followed by lake effect snow on Tuesday. Below normal temperatures continue the rest of the week, with chances for snow scattered throughout.
