Warmer tomorrow; Weekend starts dry but ends messy

High temperatures today reached the lower to middle 20s across most of Northeast Michigan, the warmest temperatures we have felt so far this week. Temperatures will continue to warm through this weekend.

High Pressure near Green Bay, Wisconsin is giving us mostly clear skies which will continue tomorrow. Off to the west, one area of low pressure is currently located over Montana, producing scattered rain and snow showers in Montana and Idaho, while the second is over Colorado. These two areas of low pressure will merge over the southern Plains, then move into the Great Lakes this weekend.

Low temperatures tonight will drop to about 1 degree under clear skies and light winds. Mostly sunny skies will repeat tomorrow with temperatures slightly warmer, reaching the lower 30s in the afternoon.

Dry weather will remain in Northeast Michigan until Saturday afternoon. A wintry mix of rain and snow (any ice should be minimal) will likely move in Saturday night, then rain for a while Sunday morning while temperatures are significantly above freezing, changing to snow showers late-day Sunday as colder air arrives.

Plenty of sun will shine tomorrow as high temperatures continue to warm. Highs will reach the lower to middle 30s on Saturday with dry weather during the daytime. A wintry mix will likely begin Saturday night, changing to rain on Sunday as temperatures reach 40 degrees. Cooler air will arrive on Sunday night-Monday with a chance of flurries.
