A round of snow tonight; Some sunshine this weekend

A round of snow showers is moving through our area this evening. A low pressure system currently over Lake Michigan will move through Northern Michigan overnight, so periods of snow will continue over the next several hours. A little wintry mix is possible this evening, but this will be mostly snow. It will take until late tomorrow for drier weather to move into Northeast Michigan.

A breeze out of the southeast at 10-15 mph has brought in warmer temperatures, highs today reached the lower and middle 30s as of 6 p.m. A breeze out of the south later this evening could cause our temperatures to rise a degree or two beyond the high temperatures reached so far.

Snow moving through Northern Michigan this evening and then lake effect snow tomorrow have caused Winter Weather Advisories to be issued, including Presque Isle County (but the advisories do not include the rest of Northeast Michigan). For Presque Isle County, the Winter Weather Advisory lasts until 11 a.m. tomorrow morning. Winter Weather Advisories for the Tip of the Mitt and Northwestern Michigan continue until 7 p.m. tomorrow. 3-6 inches of snow are expected for the areas under the Winter Weather Advisories. For the areas not included within the advisories, snowfall amounts will likely end up less than 3 inches.

The snow that has started late today will continue into early tomorrow. Then, strong winds out of the west will cause lake effect snow off of Lake Michigan. A few flurries could reach our area through the afternoon hours. Highs will likely reach the upper 20s, and skies will begin to clear tomorrow night.

Some flurries are possible tomorrow, although the lake effect snow will be more substantial well to the west of Alpena. Some sunshine is expected on Saturday with highs in the lower 20s. Sunday morning will start with cool temperatures around 6 degrees, afternoon temperatures will reach about 20 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Dry weather will continue into Monday with afternoon highs close to 20 degrees.
