LANSING, Mich. — A strong storm system will be passing by to our east today and Tuesday, bringing both gusty winds and precipitation to the region. Rain is changing over to snow this morning and then occasional light snow showers will linger today and tonight as this system passes by.
Most of the snow will move east of the Lansing area at around noon. Impacts will be minimal for most of the Mid-Michigan area with only a trace to an inch of snow expected in Lansing, and 1-2″ likely in Jackson. A few inches of accumulation will be possible in The Thumb. Our far eastern counties (Shiawassee, Livingston, Washtenaw, Lenawee) may see closer to 2-4″. Snow likely won't start sticking until this evening, watch out for slick spots on area roadways.
Temperatures will remain steady today, hovering in the low to mid 30s through this evening, and then dropping into the upper 20s tonight. Gusty northerly winds will continue into Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 30s. Wind chills will be cold down in the 20s today and tomorrow. Mostly dry Tuesday with a few lake effect snow flurries possible.
A quiet weather pattern will take shape on Wednesday and stick around through Saturday. Plan for sunny skies with highs in the mid 40s on Wednesday, and then a few more clouds will move in for Thursday with highs in the lower 40s. Friday will be partly cloudy with highs in the lower 40s and Saturday looks just as nice with plenty of sunshine and highs in the low to mid 40s.
Our next chance for snow looks to move in Sunday with temperatures falling back down into the mid 30s.
