Dry weather will start the week before a more unsettled pattern moves across the state.
According to Michigan Ag Today chief meteorologist Ryan Martin, cold air and clouds will remain throughout the day on Monday and lasting through Tuesday.
“South winds start to moderate temperatures at midweek on Wednesday,” he said. “I think we see partly sunny skies and moderate temperatures Wednesday and Thursday.”
The next frontal boundary will start to head toward Michigan on Friday, bringing more clouds and moisture into the overnight into Saturday.
“Rain to start, maybe upwards of a quarter to one-third of an inch of liquid, then on the backside we see snow—a coating to several inches as we go through Saturday and Sunday,” said Martin. “We’re probably looking at two to six inches or more over the northern third of the Lower Peninsula and the Upper Peninsula, but central and southern lower Michigan are likely to see a coating to a couple of inches.”
As the next week begins, Martin is forecasting a blast of “brutal” cold air before temperatures moderate by midweek before another weather system begins at midweek.
