An Active Weather Pattern Takes Shape Tomorrow

Posted at 9:20 AM, Dec 22, 2020

LANSING, Mich. — Good Tuesday morning!

Aside from today, the rest of the week looks fairly active in the weather department. A midweek low pressure system will bring rain showers, windy conditions, and warmer temperatures to the area, followed by lake effect snow showers and a big cool-down on Thursday and Friday.

Today will be a quiet weather day with partly sunny skies and above average temperatures in the upper 30s. A strong southerly flow will develop tonight, allowing temperatures to slowly warm during the overnight. Skies will be partly cloudy with temperatures rising from the low 30s around midnight to the upper 30s by daybreak Wednesday. The strong southerly flow will continue into Wednesday, pushing temperatures into the upper 40s for highs. Rain showers will build in Wednesday afternoon and continue into the evening. A strong cold front will move through Wednesday night, changing any leftover rain showers to snow showers.

Colder air will continue to pour into the region on Thursday. Temperatures are expected to drop during the day on Thursday, likely falling from near 30 degrees in the early morning hours to near 20 degrees by sunset. With cold air moving over the relatively warmer waters of Lake Michigan, we’ll see lake-effect snow developing on Thursday and Friday. Snow squalls with light accumulations will be possible in the usual snow belt areas. Christmas Day will be cold with highs in the lower 20s.

The weekend starts off cold and quiet with lows in the teens on Saturday morning. Temperatures will warm to around 30 degrees on Saturday afternoon with partly sunny skies. Sunday has the chance of rain and snow with highs in the mid 30s. Snow showers will linger into Monday.
