LANSING, Mich. — Cooler temperatures are back with a few rain and snow showers possible early this morning with a local, slushy, grassy dusting not out of the question. The rest of your Friday looks to be dry with mostly cloudy skies. The next system to affect us comes in Sunday afternoon with rain showers and milder temperatures pushing into the low to mid 40s by evening on brisk southerly flow out ahead of low pressure passing to our northwest. On the backside of this system, we expect lake-effect snow showers on Monday. Light accumulations are expected so keep tabs on the forecast for Monday. Very windy conditions are also anticipated for Monday. The next system arrives Tuesday evening into Wednesday with more light snow with possible accumulations.
