The map above from the Weather Prediction Center is for Thursday into Thursday night. It’s the probability of exceeding .25″ liquid equivalent of snow/sleet. That would be about 3″ of snow. You can see the probability of snow increases as you go north. It’s 10-30% north of a line from Allegan to Lansing, 30-50% from Ludington to Big Rapids to the north and 50-70% up toward Cadillac and Traverse City. The chance of 3″ of snow is less as you go south, where more of the precipitation will fall as rain.
Now, this is just one forecast. Some or most of the snow will likely melt on the roads as it falls, but bottom line is…from Thursday into Thursday night, there is a chance of accumulating snow and a better chance as you go north.
In the meantime, there is a chance of a shower today (Tue.) and once again it will remain mostly cloudy.
