Calmer skies Friday; Slightly milder temperatures Saturday

Lake effect snow has caused reduced visibility and rough travel conditions in some places throughout Northeast Michigan. Lake effect snow showers will remain possible tonight, and gradually wind down early Friday. Calmer conditions currently over Minnesota and Iowa will move in Friday.

High temperatures today reached the lower to middle 30s across Northeast Michigan, and afternoon temperature will be similar tomorrow. A breeze from the southwest will boost temperatures by a few degrees for Saturday afternoon.

Low temperatures tonight will cool to the upper teens and lake effect snow showers will still be scattered throughout our area. Mostly cloudy skies are expected during the day tomorrow. High temperatures will reach about 32 degrees. Tomorrow, winds will be very light, only about 5 mph.

On Friday, we will see a lot less falling from the sky. Mostly cloudy skies are expected with highs in the lower 30s. A few flurries or light wintry mix are possible on Saturday, and temperatures will climb to the upper 30s. Snow showers will become more likely on Sunday with highs in the middle 30s. After Sunday’s disturbance moves past our area, very cold air out of the northwest will rush into our early next week.
