LANSING, Mich. — All of Mid-Michigan has a Freezing Fog Advisory in effect through 9 A.M. this morning. Patchy dense fog combined with temperatures only in the 20s may lead to slick spots during the morning commute mainly on bridges and overpasses. Once the fog lifts later this morning, we will enjoy mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures. Highs will climb into the upper 40s this afternoon, putting us more than ten degrees above-average for this time of December. Skies will remain mostly clear tonight, and then increasing cloud cover is in the forecast for Friday. Low temperatures will drop into the low to mid 30s tonight and we’ll rebound in to the mid 40s by Friday afternoon.
Our next chance of precipitation comes over the weekend as a low pressure system moves through the area. The latest forecast track keeps us on the warmer side of this system, which means our precipitation type will be mainly in the form of rain. Rain showers will build into the region Friday night and the rain will become widespread on Saturday with highs in the mid 40s. The accumulating snowfall is expected to stay north of the Mid-Michigan area, likely impacting Northern Lower Michigan. As colder air wraps in behind the low, we could see any lingering rain showers changing to snow showers Saturday night and into early Sunday. Sunday’s temperatures will return to near-normal with highs in the 30s.
The beginning of next work week looks fairly quiet. Skies will be partly cloudy on Monday with highs in the mid 30s. More cloud cover will arrive for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the mid 30s. We may see a few scattered snow showers on Wednesday.
