Tuesday was the coldest day of the season thus far as temperatures during the afternoon held in the teens, even with some sun shining. Temperatures overnight will settle into the single digits, but the winds will diminish, so the wind chill will become less of a factor.
Wednesday morning's drive should be a quiet one as the clouds increase across the area. As a clipper-type system dives toward south-central lower Michigan, it is likely we will see some snow overspread Mid-Michigan. The snow will begin late morning, and continue on through the afternoon and into the evening before ending. Right now, it looks like the southern parts of the ABC12 viewing area will see the heaviest amounts. The southern parts of lower Michigan will see the heaviest amounts of all - somewhere around 8 inches or so. Expect that Wednesday evening commute to be a slow one.
A WINTER STORM WATCH kicks into effect Wednesday morning, although by that time, it will be changed to a Winter Weather Advisory, or upgraded to a WINTER STORM WARNING for parts of our area. We will keep an eye on it!
