LANSING, Mich. — Quiet weather today followed by snow tonight then rain on Wednesday. The daytime hours of today will be quiet with with increasing clouds and seasonable temperatures in the low 30s. Our next weather-maker moves in tonight, starting with snow. Light snow accumulations look likely overnight with about 1-2″ of snow possible in Lansing and Jackson, higher amounts possible north of Lansing.

The Wednesday morning commute will be slick. Snow is expected to begin after 9 PM this evening and continue through the overnight hours, especially north of I-94. Locations along I-94 will see around an inch of snow tonight before the precipitation changes over to a wintry mix early Wednesday morning. Locations closer to I-96 should expect 1-2″ of snow tonight, and then higher amounts are expected north of the Lansing area where snow will be the main precipitation type until late Wednesday morning. 2-4″ seems reasonable for places like St. Johns, Owosso and Ionia.

Warmer air will build in on Wednesday from south to north, pushing temperatures above the freezing mark. There may be a brief period of freezing rain as the snow transitions to rain, but it should be fairly short lived. Once temperatures are above freezing, we’ll see scattered rain showers through the late afternoon Wednesday with highs in the low 40s.

We quiet things down on Thursday for New Years Eve with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures topping out in the mid 30s. Another storm system is expected to impact the area on New Years Day. At this point, it looks like we’ll see a wintry mix arriving on Friday morning, transitioning to all rain Friday afternoon as temperatures warm into the upper 30s during the day.

A few stray snow flurries will be possible on Saturday, but most areas will be mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 30s. Some sunshine is expected on Sunday with highs in the mid 30s.
