LANSING, Mich. — Clouds will thicken overnight ahead of a storm system that will bring us some flurries and a few snow showers today. The snow will not be heavy and accumulations will be on the order of a dusting to less than an inch. Friday will feature a few lake effect snow showers but again, accumulations will be light. The next chance for snow will come on Sunday evening with temperatures near the freezing mark. Some locations closer to the Indiana border may have to contend with a bit of a mix, otherwise 1" to 3" are possible. Perhaps the biggest story in the extended forecast will be warming temps. Average highs for this time of the year are in the mid 30s and we will likely meet, if not exceed, that mark by early next week.

TODAY: Partly sunny. Mostly cloudy elsewhere with light snow showers possible. A dusting is possible as a bigger storm system passes to our south/east into the Northeast United States. Highs in the mid 20s. Winds northeast at 5 to 10 mph.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy early, becoming clear to partly cloudy overnight. Lows near 10 degrees. Light northeast winds become variable.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with the light lake effect snow showers. Up to an inch is possible along/west of U.S. 131. Highs in the mid 20s. West-southwest winds at 6 to 12 mph.

SATURDAY: Partly cloudy to partly sunny. Highs in the mid 20s.

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy with snow showers developing later in the day. Highs in the lower 30s.

MONDAY: Light snow/mix early, then drying out. Highs in the mid 30s.
