Warmer weekend on the way; Light patchy mixed precipitation

Areas of snow showers currently over the Upper Plains will move east. A few patchy flurries are possible in Northeast Michigan on Friday. After that, a round of some light/rain snow showers will be scattered over Northeast Michigan during the daytime on Saturday.

High temperatures in Alpena reached 30 degrees earlier this afternoon. Notice the warmer temperatures in Chicago — Winds out of the southwest this weekend will bring warmer temperatures to our area over the next couple days. Afternoon temperatures will reach the middle 30s Friday and Saturday.

Overnight lows will settle in the lower to middle 20s with cloudy skies. A few scattered light flurries will be around our area Friday with high temperatures getting up to 34 degrees.

High temperatures will get up to 36 degrees on Saturday. Winds out of the southwest will pick up on Sunday and boost temperatures into the lower 40s. Highs in the upper 30s are expected Monday. After that, a system traveling to our south early next week will help block further warmth from reaching Northern Michigan. Northwest winds will steer colder air into our area, and highs will be close to 30 degrees Tuesday, then in the middle 20s Wednesday.

Any snowfall amounts on Friday will be minimal, a light dusting at most. The greatest chance of any light rain/snow showers on Saturday will be midday-afternoon. On Groundhog Day (Sunday), mostly cloudy skies are expected with highs near 41 degrees. Snow showers will be possible Tuesday to early Wednesday — a storm system will be coming from the southwest and our chance of snow depends on how far north this storm will track.
