Cool temperatures Tuesday with a chance of snow late in the day
High temperatures today reached the lower 30s as colder air has entered the Northeast Michigan with winds out of the northwest. Cloudy skies persisted in Alpena, though areas just to the south around Oscoda and Tawas City saw some light snow in the morning.
The storm system that brought snow to our south is currently centered over Northwestern Pennsylvania. Some areas of southern Michigan, including Grand Rapids, Lansing, Saginaw, and Flint received 4-6 inches of snow from last evening through midday today. As the storm system continues to travel northeastward along the Canadian border, some lingering moisture may produce a few snow showers in Northeast Michigan tomorrow afternoon-evening.
Additionally, wind speeds have picked up to around 15-20 mph. Persistent winds about 15-25 mph will continue through tomorrow, then gradually weaken on Wednesday. Winds out of the northwest will continue to bring cool temperatures tomorrow.
Overnight low temperatures will drop to the mid-20s, and mainly dry weather will last through tomorrow morning. Some snow showers are possible in the afternoon-evening, somewhat unusually backing their way onto the shoreline from the east, due to the departing system.
High temperatures will reach the lower 30s tomorrow. By early Wednesday morning, generally dry conditions will enter Northeast Michigan. Mostly cloudy skies are expected on Wednesday with highs in the lower 30s. Temperatures will gradually warm through the end of the week, approaching 40 degrees this weekend. Another round of light snow is likely late Thursday-early Friday.
