A cloudy, but milder start to the weekend; turning cold again Sunday into early next week


We’re starting the day with cold temperatures and clear skies, but clouds will be on the increase. Skies become cloudy to mostly cloudy by the afternoon as a warm front approaches from the west. Winds trend S around 5-15 mph, which will bring in some warmer temps. Highs top out in the mid 20s to low 30s.


Skies remain cloudy as the warm front approaches attached to a low moving to our north. This will bring a chance of some scattered light snow showers. We won’t see much accumulation from this, but accumulations of a couple tenths of an inch is expected. Winds trend light out of the W and SW. Lows fall back into the low to mid 20s.

Skies will remain cloudy, but temperatures remain on the milder side. The low moves over to our east with a powerful cold front sitting to our north. A few snow showers are possible in the afternoon, but some mix is possible as well. Highs top out in the 30s, so a little closer to average with a W wind around 5-15 mph. Lows fall back into the mid teens to mid 20s.


Surface Map Noon Sunday

We’ll see a little bit on sunshine into Sunday afternoon, but it will be much colder. High temperatures will come just after midnight, in the mid 20s to near 30. By the afternoon, temperatures will be in the teens and with a breezy NW wind, it’ll feel more like the single digits. The NW wind will also kickstart the lake effect snow machine once again for the U.P. and Snowbelt. Lows fall back into the single digits and low teens with partially clear skies, but lake effect snow will continue.


We’ll see a mix of clouds and sunshine to begin the week, but temperatures will be frigid. Winds remain out of the NW, which will not only keep the cold temperatures around, but lake effect snow will continue for the U.P. and Snowbelt. Highs top out in the teens Monday, with mid teens to low 20s Tuesday. Lows fall back into the single digits Monday night, with single digits to mid-teens Tuesday night. Some areas Monday night will likely drop below zero.


Another weak system will bring in some scattered snow showers Wednesday, but then we’ll see a drier end to the start with warmer temperatures too! Highs will remain in the 20s Wednesday and Thursday, but models indicate highs back in the mid to even upper 30s by the beginning of next weekend.
