Dry and warm pattern ends later this week

It’s been a warm January so far, every high temperature this month has climbed above normal. The warmest so far this month was 37 degrees on January 6. As a whole, taking the average of all the high temperatures so far this month, it’s running about 6 degrees above normal for early January. The warmth will continue over the next couple of days.

Our weather remains quiet as is the case across much of the Midwest. A storm system in the southeast has been giving snow to parts of Tennessee and Virginia. Our next system will first arrive in the Pacific Northwest. They’re already getting some moisture in areas of Washington and Oregon, just on the very forward edge of a storm system still located in the Pacific, yet to come fully ashore. Pacific moisture will track across the northern part of the country and become our next weather-maker on Thursday here in Northern Michigan.

Tuesday and Wednesday look dry with mostly cloudy skies. Initially, a chance of a wintry mix will move in Thursday afternoon (rain/sleet/snow all possible), then change to snow Thursday evening. The chance of mixed precipitation or snow will increase from Thursday afternoon to Thursday evening. Friday morning-midday, snow showers or a rain/snow mix will be possible.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. Predawn temperatures will begin in the middle 20s. By the late-morning, temperatures will rise to the lower 30s. Afternoon highs will get up to 36 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the lower 30s.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. Early-morning temperatures will dip to the upper 20s. Afternoon highs will reach about 38 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the lower 30s.

Thursday: Cloudy in the morning, wintry mix in the afternoon, then evening snow showers. Early-morning temperatures will head into the upper 20s. Afternoon highs will climb to 37 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the middle 30s.
