WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Rain Develops Tonight, Chance Mix north of White Cloud and Big Rapids
Showers Tomorrow, Chance Thunderstorm
Winter Cold and Snow Return on Saturday

TONIGHT  Showers develop across the area this evening.  Areas north of White Cloud, Big Rapids and Mount Pleasant could have a period of a mix of freezing rain, though the best bet for that is in Northern Lower Michigan.  Lows will be in the upper 30s (low-mid 30s north of Newaygo and low-mid 40s along I-94.  Winds will be northnortheast at 5-10 mph, but increasing to 15 mph from the east around daybreak.

TOMORROW  A strong storm system will move into Lower Michigan Friday.  We could see 1/2″ to 1.5″ of rain from Thursday night into Friday evening, including the chance of thunderstorms with gusty winds. It will likely be the last real warm day of February with temperatures expected well above average, though there should be quite a range of temperatures from the low-mid 60s at the Indiana border to the low-mid 40s along US 10.  At this point it appears Grand Rapids will not make it into the warm sector with temperatures remaining in the 40s through the day. Much of West Michigan will fall under either a Slight or Enhanced Risk for Severe Weather. from I-96 to the south.

WEEKEND WEATHER    Winter isn’t done yet!   We will see much colder air move in for the weekend, with highs in the 30s both days and scattered snow showers. Snow showers will be much more widespread Saturday with just a few flurries expected Sunday.

LOOKING AHEAD   Slightly warmer air returns for next week, with highs back in the 40s starting Monday.
