LANSING, Mich. — It will be a quiet and calm New Year’s Eve with skies becoming partly cloudy today and we’ll remain partly cloudy tonight. Today’s highs will be seasonable in the lower 30s and then temperatures will fall to near 20 degrees during the overnight.

Another system will arrive on New Year’s Day, bringing a mixed bag of precipitation to the area. The morning hours of Friday look dry with skies becoming cloudy. The precipitation will begin moving in around midday, continuing to spread across the area from south to north during the afternoon and evening. Similar to yesterday’s storm system, it looks like we’ll start with snow and then transition to a wintry mix and freezing rain as slightly warmer air builds in. As temperatures fall on Friday night, the precipitation will transition back over to snow again before ending early Saturday morning. Our biggest concern will be freezing rain and ice accumulations during the day on Friday. Locations south of I-96 could see a quarter inch of ice with this event, resulting in hazardous travel Friday night and Saturday morning.

Things calm down for the weekend with partly sunny skies expected on Saturday and a few scattered snow showers on Sunday. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s this weekend. The quiet weather pattern will continue into the work week with a mix of clouds and sun expected Monday through Wednesday.
