The messy weather that had impacting weather conditions in the central U.S. during the weekend, meandered its way into the Great Lake State Monday. Some snow, sleet, freezing rain, and some plain old rain moved in from the southwest. Advisories will remain in effect for parts of the ABC12 viewing area into Tuesday morning. It is likely that roads will be slippery from time-to-time, and from place-to-place right through Tuesday morning.
The wintry mix will gradually change over to strictly rain showers in a south-to-north fashion as we work through the wee hours of our Tuesday. There will be some accumulation of ice, and after the pattern changes over to strictly rain, rain totals could top 1/2" in some areas.
Behind all this mess, it appears that we are in store for a relatively mild week. Typically, this part of January is our coldest part of the winter, but that won't be the case this season. Later this week, temperatures will likely be in the mid-to-upper 40s. - JR
