Warmer temperatures this weekend won’t last; Rain changing to snow on Monday

High temperatures today reached the lower 30s across Northeast Michigan. Winds will become out of the southwest this weekend, and that will help bring warmer temperatures. But a storm system on Monday followed by arctic high pressure will bring much colder temperatures in the middle of next week.

A few rain showers will be possible Sunday afternoon and evening as high temperatures get near 40 degrees, but amounts will be minimal. Temperatures will remain above freezing early Monday, and rain will become steadier around lunchtime. A rain/snow mix is likely Monday afternoon as temperatures start falling. Temperatures will drop below freezing which will cause a changeover to snow Monday evening. Additional snow showers are expected Tuesday.

Rainfall amounts on Sunday will be less than 0.25 inch. On Monday, the amount of snowfall will depend on how early rain changes to snow. If the changeover to snow happens as anticipated, late Monday, amounts will be close to 1 inch. An earlier change to snow will result in higher snowfall amounts. Tuesday will be cold enough for only snow, and a couple inches are possible.

Low temperatures overnight will bottom out near 16 degrees. Cloudy skies are expected Saturday with highs near 32 degrees. High temperatures will warm to 40 degrees on Sunday, so it will be warm enough for rain showers late-day. Highs will be in the middle 30s on Monday, but temperatures will fall in the afternoon. Much colder air will move in Tuesday and Wednesday — highs will be in the 20s Tuesday, teens Wednesday.
