Very cold Tuesday morning but warmer with melting by Wednesday

Temperatures will jump above the freezing mark Wednesday along with sunshine back in the forecast after a cloudy day Tuesday.

While it was a very cold start to Tuesday with Pellston dropping down to -14F early in the day, a turn in wind out of the south will lead to much warmer weather by Wednesday.

As that milder weather arrives Tuesday, skies will cloud over little if any sunshine expected. After that cold start to the morning, temperatures will climb into the 25-33F range (which will be about 10 degrees) warmer than Monday. Wind from the south 5-15 mph. Dry although I suppose a flurry is possible in the Eastern U.P. Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday night...partly cloudy...lows 15 to 25 degrees...south wind 5-15 mph.

Wednesday (Valentine's Day) will be the warmest day of the week. Highs will jump into the 35 to 45 degree range. Look for plenty of sunshine. Wind from the southwest 5-15 mph.

A cold front will roll through Thursday night with temperatures by Friday dropping all the way back into the teens to around 20F. Overall, a quiet forecast with little snow this week.

Sidenote, there are indications that there may be a better than usual chance to see the Northern Lights perhaps Tuesday night but more so Wednesday night. Far from a certainty, but with clearing skies just a heads up on that.
