Good Evening Mid-Michigan! It’s been a rollercoaster of temperatures the past few weeks as the polar vortex is shearing apart and releasing bubbles of colder air over the northern U.S. For tonight, expect snow showers developing with a low of around 25, with winds gusting as high as 24 mph.
For the rest of this week expect cooler temps with fair skies. Temperatures should be around 35 to 40 each day, with lows in the mid to upper 20’s.
The next snow event arrives Friday and Friday night with winds gusting around 35-40 mph for the first half of the morning, decreasing through the afternoon until a brief period of gusts to 35 mph arrives for the first half of the night, again steadily decreasing through the morning.
Saturday through Monday will be mostly to partly cloudy with highs in the mid to upper 30s. We will most likely see a few more days near 40 in the coming weeks, with longer-term above-average temperatures returning possibly into late March or April as the polar vortex regains its hold on the cold air and keeps it over extreme northern Canada.
