Good morning! It's Friday...the weekend is almost here! Today, Mother Nature gives us a break from the snow -- finally -- but it won't last long. Skies will be cloudy and a flurry or two are possible, especially north of I-96. Temperatures will be about ten degrees warmer than yesterday which will put afternoon highs in the upper 20s; we'll take it.
Our weather tranquility ends this evening as bands of snow move in from the south. The snow is courtesy of a storm moving across the Ohio Valley. Morning weather models are painting more snow across West Michigan than at any other time this week. The responsible low pressure gets as far north as central Ohio, which is a perfect spot for accumulating snow in the lower Peninsula.
While system snow ends Saturday evening, lake effect snow showers fly Sunday in colder air. Light snow is also slated for your Monday. But, drier weather is currently in the mix Tuesday through next Thursday. Highs next week will mainly be in the 20s.
