LANSING, Mich. — We have a more mild air mass heading toward Mid-Michigan, but before we can tap into that warmer air, we have to get through a little bit of wintry weather. Light snow will spread into the area from southwest to northeast starting this afternoon. Temperatures should be at or above freezing by the time the snow arrives, so we don’t anticipate major impacts on our roadways as this system moves through. Nevertheless, be mindful that you could run into a few slick spots once the snow starts to fall. In terms of accumulation, we should only see a trace to an inch here in Mid-Michigan. The higher snow totals will be north of our area.

As warmer air moves into the region this evening and tonight, the snow will transition over to all rain. Temperatures will rise into the low 40s during the overnight hours, and then tomorrow will be mild with highs in the upper 40s. Rain showers will remain possible through the day on Wednesday before we eventually dry out Wednesday night.

Thanksgiving Day will be mostly cloudy and warm with highs near 50 degrees. We may see a few peeks of sunshine late Thursday, but we have a better chance of seeing some sun on Friday. Friday’s highs will climb into the lower 50s.

The weekend looks pretty nice with plenty of sunshine on Saturday and then a few more clouds on Sunday. High temperatures will be in the mid 40s this weekend. A low pressure system will approach the area early next week, so another round of precipitation looks possible as early as Sunday night.
