An extensive area of snow stretches from Northern Michigan all the way to Kansas. The storm is currently centered over western Missouri and will travel through Lower Michigan tomorrow. This will bring light, steady snow this evening. Persistent, steady snow will cause slow travel conditions, slick roads, and reduced visibility during the morning and afternoon tomorrow.
A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for parts of Northern Michigan — including Alpena, Montmorency, Presque Isle, Cheboygan, and Otsego counties. The warning is valid until 7 p.m. tomorrow, and about 6-9 inches of snow are expected within the warned area.
Elsewhere across Northeast Michigan, 5-8 inches of snow will be common, shown in the area shaded in orange. The one region that could see lower snowfall amounts is around Saginaw Bay, where some mixed precipitation may occur tomorrow afternoon with temperatures in the middle 30s, so 4-7 inches of snow are forecast for the area shaded in green.
High temperatures today reached the lower 20s for most locations in Northeast Michigan. Afternoon temperatures will warm into the lower 30s tomorrow, the warmest day of the upcoming week.
Tomorrow, snow is most likely in the morning and afternoon. Then, the snow will lighten up tomorrow evening. High temperatures will warm to around 33 degrees in Alpena, and by the afternoon winds will shift out of the north, about 10 mph.
Tomorrow will be snowy, then conditions will improve tomorrow evening with dry weather into Thursday morning. A few light snow showers are possible Thursday afternoon through Thursday night, because of a “Clipper” system coming out of western Canada. After that, much colder air will move in for the end of the week. Highs will reach the middle-upper 20s on Thursday, then much colder air will arrive Friday.
