A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from 10 p.m. this evening until 11 a.m. Friday morning. This is for a general 1-2″ of snow and slippery road conditions. First, the snow will move in from SW to NE across the area overnight. Most of us will see dry conditions and dry roads this evening. As the band crosses the area, you’ll see several hours of snow and roads will become slippery for the Friday morning commute. It will become quite windy tomorrow, with steady WNW winds of 20 mph and gusts to +30 mph. That may cause some blowing and drifting and there could be additional (mainly light) snow showers from Friday PM into Saturday. It stays unseasonably cold, with highs on Saturday only in the mid 30s.
It was very cold this morning across N. Michigan. Roscommon was the coldest spot in the contiguous U.S. with a low temp. of -10. Sigma dipped to -9 and Grayling got down to -8. Gaylord reached -7 and Pellston dropped to -6. Cadillac had a low temp. of +2 and Baldwin fell to zero.
