You could call it a "spring preview" to end our weekend. We flirted with records today in both Flint and Saginaw as the thermometer pushed into the mid to upper 40s. However, our first polar plunge that will stick around for a week is almost here.
Overnight, look for cloudy skies with very mild temperatures near 30. Monday will be transition day with lots of clouds and highs in the mid to upper 30s.
The coldest air of the season will start to seep into mid-Michigan and all of the Great Lakes this week.
Snow showers could get heavy at times, both Tuesday and Wednesday with the relatively warmer waters of the Great Lakes adding moisture. Temperatures will sag into the low 30s Tuesday and low 20 Wednesday.
Through Wednesday, several inches of snow will accumulate and this time stick around for a while, with 6-12 inches likely in lake sensitive areas close to shore.
This cold snap will last into next weekend with highs only in the upper teens to low 20s from Wednesday through Sunday, well below our normal of 31 for this time of year. - KG
