MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) (11/5/2018) - Snowflakes could fly through much of Mid-Michigan by the end of the week.
Tuesday’s powerful storm system will open the gates for cold air to pour into the Great Lakes region from northern Canada. It’ll be slow at first with highs in the 40s for Wednesday and Thursday.
But, as another clipper-type system moves in by Friday a second punch of cold air moves in as well. As of Monday afternoon, it is expected to be cold enough for a rain/snow mix across the area with all snow up to the north.
However, everything depends on how cold the atmosphere will actually be and at many different levels. Obviously, that means it is also still too far out to talk about amounts, if any.
The system bears watching through the week as it develops, though.
Either way, it will certainly feel like winter. Temperatures will be some 15 degrees below average with highs in the 30s through the weekend. Wind chills will remain in the teens and 20s.
Snow is not unheard of by any means in the month of November. The average first measurable snowfall in Flint is Nov. 15.
