LANSING, Mich. — We'll have active weather these next two days to close out the 2010's decade. A low pressure system continues to bring rain through our area Sunday evening, but will taper off to spotty showers Monday afternoon. Thunder may be possible south of the I-96 corridor. About 0.75" to 1.5" of additional rain can be expected.

Conditions will also become breezy to windy on Monday morning, with winds out of the southwest between 20-30mph, with occasional gusts near 40mph. The strongest winds are likely to occur early to mid-morning as the center of the low pressure system passes through the area, slowly weakening into the afternoon.

Along with the wind and rain showers, temperatures will be falling on Monday. The morning high in the lower 40s will cool into the lower 30s by the afternoon as the showers taper off. Snow showers are expected to develop late Monday night and into Tuesday morning. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for parts of Mid-Michigan (counties along and west of US-127) as an inch or two of snow could fall before and during the Tuesday morning commute.

We're mainly dry for the first few days of 2020 with temperatures remaining on the mild side, as highs are in the 40s into the first weekend of the New Year.
