With lots of clouds holding across Mid-Michigan Friday, we did see some flakes of snow fly here and there. In the morning, some freezing drizzle managed to sneak in too, so some cars had a glaze and a few roads were slippery for a little while. With brisk northeasterly winds holding for the day, the snow showers were a little more concentrated in the Thumb as all of us experienced steady, to slowly falling temperatures for the day. Some snow showers will continue through the night.
Our Saturday will begin with cloudy skies and a few lingering snow showers or flurries. Temperatures in the morning will range from the single numbers, to lower double digits. With lighter northeasterly winds prevailing through the day, high temperatures will range from the teens to lower 20s. The trend for the late-day period will be for the clouds to start breaking up, so some of us could see a little bit of sunshine before the day comes to a close.
Sunday is shaping-up to be a terrific wintertime day across the ABC12 viewing area. Skies will be at least partly sunny and winds will be pretty light. That’s always a good combination. High temperatures Sunday will be in the 20s, while readings for the holiday could touch 30. That’s right where we should be. We will see more cloud cover again Monday and there will be a chance of a few flurries, but travel conditions should be fine as we close out the holiday weekend. On ABC12 News we'll be tracking a chance for snow accumulation for next week. - JR
