Slippery Spots on Area Roads, Especially in the Lakeshore Counties
Breezy and Cold – Coldest Day Will Be Saturday

NOW THRU THURSDAY   Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories continue until 10 Thursday.  Total snow through Thursday will accumulate 6-16″ in the heavier lakeshore snow bands mainly in the lakeshore counties.  Inland just flurries with 1-2″. Watch for slippery travel conditions primarily near the lakeshore through at least Thursday.  Temperatures will be down to near 10 tonight and highs in the lower 20s tomorrow. Winds will be out of the northwest-west at 10-15 mph pushing wind chills down into the single digits.

FRIDAY – WEEKEND WEATHER   Look for mostly cloudy skies on Friday with a chance of a period of snow showers.  Highs will be in the low-mid 20s.  The coldest air of the season is likely this weekend, with highs in the low teens on Saturday (coldest high temp. of the winter this Saturday), and the potential for Sunday morning’s lows to drop to or even below zero.   Scattered snow showers are possible Saturday morning, mainly by Lake Michigan.  We could see a little sunshine Saturday and Sunday morning, especially in inland areas.  Winds will turn to the north Saturday and back to the SSE for Sunday PM at 5-15 mph.

LOOKING AHEAD   The coldest air pushes east and temperatures should be back closer to average by Tuesday.  We could see a period of light snow Sunday night into Monday morning.  Temperatures may rebound to near 30 Monday, the mid 30s next Tuesday and the upper 30s on Wednesday the 17th.
