Scattered flurries and snow showers rolled over central Michigan on Monday as high temperatures crept into the lower 30s. The snow wasn’t a big deal for most of us, but the roads got pretty slippery for a while in the northern parts of the ABC12 viewing area. Overnight the persistent showers will end and the clouds will clear up a bit in some areas. Low temperatures early Tuesday morning will settle in the lower end, well into the mid-teens. That’s pretty close to “normal” for this part of February.
Tuesday will also be pretty close to “normal” for a February day. With sometimes partly sunny skies and a generally light southwest to west wind, high temperatures will reach the 30 degree mark. Our “normal” maximum is now 31 degrees. Wednesday will be warmer with highs moving easily into the 30s. We will also have a good chance of scattered snow showers for the day. In the southern parts of the area, a few raindrops may mix with snowflakes.
Brisk northwesterly winds behind Wednesday’s precipitation will bring temperatures back into the 20s for Thursday. Our temperature roller coaster ride continues on Friday as stronger southwesterly winds push readings up again for the end of the work week. Friday will also bring a possibility of heavy wet snow accumulation. It shouldn’t be a major storm, but we’ll keep an eye on it. On ABC12 News, we’ll let you know what’s in store behind Friday’s weather for Valentine’s Day weekend. -JR
