Another round of snow moves in Saturday; Bitter cold to follow Sunday night

Another influx of moisture moving in from the south will increase snow chances for the second half of Saturday. The greatest chances of snow will take place from midday through the evening. Following that, there could be a few leftover flurries Sunday but amounts on Sunday look very minimal.

From Saturday midday through evening, 2-4 inches of additional snowfall are likely. There’s a lower chance of some flurries on Sunday, maybe amounting up to 1 inch. Monday is looking completely dry. Another chance of snow showers arrives Tuesday with a possibility of up to 2 inches.

Following this weekend’s snow chances, some bitter cold will settle into Northeast Michigan Sunday night-early Monday. Temperatures will drop below zero. Wind chills are forecast to go below minus 10 early Monday.

Saturday: Snow begins midday or early-afternoon, continues into the evening. Early-morning lows will be near 8 degrees. Afternoon highs will get up to around 18 degrees. Evening temperatures will dip to the middle teens.

Sunday: A chance of flurries. Early-morning temperatures will begin near 6 degrees. Afternoon highs will reach close to 16 degrees. Evening temperatures will cool below 10 degrees.

Monday: Extremely cold early, mostly cloudy. Predawn lows will drop to about minus 3 degrees. Afternoon highs will be near 13 degrees. Evening temperatures will go to the mid-single digits.

Looking ahead, the arctic chill will begin to east midweek. We will have to endure some bitter cold temperatures Sunday and Monday. Beyond that, daily high temperatures will climb to the 20s Wednesday through late-week. While still a few degrees below “normal” for mid-February, temperatures will certainly feel more tolerable during the second half of the week ahead.
