Travel conditions across Mid-Michigan have been pretty bad with a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and plain old rain making roads slippery. As temperatures drop below the freezing mark for the entire area, the wet and slushy roads will freeze up. As a result, slippery roads will remain a good bet for our Thursday.
To add a little insult to injury, another cold front will move into our area late Thursday. The front will support scattered snow showers late Thursday, through Thursday night. Accumulations will be less than an inch. More importantly, the front is going to usher in another big pile of arctic air. It looks like high temperatures for Friday, the weekend, and much of next week, will not make it to the 20-degree mark.
For the weekend, another batch of light snow showers will move in for Saturday night. The pattern may linger as scattered flurries through our Sunday. A weather system moving in from the west-northwest on Monday, will not only reinforce the cold air we will already have across the area, but it may also bring a decent snowfall with it. We will keep our eye on it! - JR
