Dry start to the weekend; Light snow moves in Sunday

A blast of much colder air has settled into Michigan, following a cold front that moved through late yesterday. Highs only got up to 20 degrees in Alpena. But take a look to our north where temperatures were even colder, highs only reached 9 degrees in Marquette, Michigan and 11 degrees in Duluth. However, temperatures were significantly warmer farther to the west, where highs warmed to 26 degrees in Omaha, Nebraska and 30 degrees in Bismarck, North Dakota. That moderately warmer air will progress into Michigan Sunday and Monday.

It will continue to feel substantially more chilly than the actual temperature overnight into early Saturday. Low temperatures overnight will be near 10 degrees or in the teens. But combined with a breeze from the northwest, that’s going to send wind chills into the single digits or close to 0.

Saturday is looking dry with a mix of sun and clouds. The next storm system moving in from the west looks fairly unimpressive, but it will be enough to provide light snow across Northern Michigan Sunday morning-afternoon. Amounts are looking light, less than 2 inches.

Saturday: Mix of sun and clouds, winds become lighter. Predawn temperatures will drop to lows near 12 degrees. By the late-morning, temperatures will climb to around 20 degrees. Afternoon highs will be near 24 degrees. Evening temperatures will head into the upper teens

Sunday: Light snow in the morning and afternoon. Predawn temperatures will drop to lows around 12 degrees. Late-morning temperatures will rise to the lower 20s. Afternoon highs will get up to 28 degrees.

Monday: Mostly cloudy, a little milder. Early-morning temperatures will begin with lows in the upper teens. Afternoon highs will reach about 30 degrees. Evening temperatures will dip to the middle 20s.
