MID-MICHIGAN — Temperatures will be slightly cooler today with a high around 40. It will be dry and quiet...the calm before our next winter storm arrives tomorrow. Our weather team has been tracking a winter storm arriving tomorrow. Our forecast models have had a difficult time with the exact track of this system. We do expect another round of winter weather on Friday including heavy snow and perhaps a brief mix of rain or freezing rain, but icing is NOT expected to become an issue. Winds will strengthen as this system arrives as well with gusts of 40/45 mph possible. Travel impacts are likely, especially for the Friday evening commute. A WINTER STORM WATCH has been posted for areas (except Oceana County) for Friday afternoon/evening. Dry conditions return this weekend with seasonable conditions. There's a small chance for some light rain or snow on Monday.

TODAY: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies, dry and quiet. Highs around 40. Winds northwest/north at 5 to 10 mph.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, dry, and quiet. Lows in the upper 20s to around 30. Winds northeast/east at 5 to 10 mph.

FRIDAY: Our next significant weather system arrives! Cloudy and windy with accumulating snow likely. There may be some minor rain or freezing rain at times, but icing is NOT likely.
