Snow showers until early Friday; Cool and dry start to the weekend

Light snow showers are progressing through Northeast Michigan tonight, generated by a weak cold front coming out of central Canada. This weak cold front will move through Northern Michigan early Friday. An area of high pressure near North Dakota will move eastward and give clearing skies Friday afternoon. A recent cold front passage and high pressure nearby will create a perfect combination to allow cold temperatures Friday night to early Saturday.

Friday morning, temperatures will be in the middle 20s with a few flurries. High temperatures will reach about 30 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Winds will come out of the northwest at 10-15 mph.

Flurries will be possible Friday morning, but the later hours of Friday afternoon and evening should be dry. Dry conditions will likely continue Saturday. Warmer temperatures will move in Sunday, and a weak system north of the Great Lakes will give a chance of rain showers in the afternoon and evening. A separate, stronger system coming from the southern Plains will bring rain initially early Monday. After the storm’s center moves through Michigan, winds out of the north will cause temperatures to drop throughout the day on Monday — resulting in a changeover to snow.

This weekend, temperatures will go on an upward trend. Highs will reach the lower 30s on Saturday, then lower 40s on Sunday. Temperatures will drop on Monday, then highs on Tuesday will reach only the middle 20s.

Friday will end with dry weather and highs close to 30 degrees. Temperatures will drop to a low of 16 degrees Friday night to early Saturday morning. The weekend will start with dry weather on Saturday and highs in the lower 30s. High temperatures will climb to the lower 40s on Sunday and rain showers will be possible in the afternoon and evening. Highs on Monday will reach the middle 30s early, then temperatures will drop in the afternoon causing a change from rain to snow.
