On/off rounds of snow showers through midweek; Warmer Tuesday ahead

A weak disturbance is providing some snow showers or mixed precipitation over parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula. That disturbance is heading eastward and will move into Northeast Michigan late tonight. A few snow showers are expected overnight to early Tuesday with minimal amounts. The next storm system, currently giving snow and rain to the northwestern U.S., will travel eastward. That next system will arrive in Northeast Michigan predawn Wednesday.

Chances of snow over the next few days:

  • Tuesday: Any snow leftover on Tuesday will end by midday, amounts will be up to 1 inch. Then we’ll have dry weather for Tuesday afternoon and evening.
  • Wednesday: The next round of snow could be somewhat more impactful. It will begin predawn Wednesday and last through the morning hours. That could potentially drop 1 to 4 inches with the greatest amounts north of M-32. Expect slower travel during the Wednesday morning commute because of slick roadways and lower visibility. Dry weather will return for Wednesday afternoon through nighttime.
  • Thursday: A few flurries will be possible midday-afternoon, but those will be scattered and generally unsubstantial.
  • Friday: The brightest day in the forecast (no snow).

Tuesday: Snow showers early and breezy. Winds will be coming from the WNW about 15 mph. Predawn lows will be in the upper 20s. After the snow chances end, high temperatures will reach close to 40 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the middle and lower 30s.

Wednesday: Snow predawn to midday, also breezy. Winds will be coming from the NW around 15 mph. Early-morning temperatures will begin in the upper 20s. Afternoon highs will be near 36 degrees. Evening temperatures will cool to the 20s.

Thursday: A colder morning, a few flurries are possible midday-afternoon. Temperatures will drop to the lower/middle teens predawn. Afternoon highs will be near 30 degrees. Evening temperatures will head into the middle/lower 20s.
