LANSING, Mich. — Above average temperatures are expected to hang around the state for the next several days.

While a mix of light rain and snow showers runs on and off on Saturday, the impactful weather remains at a minimum over the coming weekend.

Clouds stick around for a drier Sunday, and a few light snow showers move through Monday afternoon. Outside of a dusting on vehicles and other chilly surfaces, accumulation is not expected at this time.

This sets the stage for a dry period between Tuesday and much of Wednesday. Highs near 40 will accompany quiet conditions before rain showers develop Wednesday after dark.

Overnight the rain will begin to thin out, but it may switch to snow by the early morning hours of Thursday before it wraps up. Either way, all showers rain or snow will be done by midday.

This is significant because if snow sticks on Thursday morning, it will stay around for a white Christmas. Temperatures will only top out in the 20s on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The cold spurt seems as if it only lasts into the first half of the Christmas weekend, as temperatures are back to the 30s after next Saturday.
