Cold and Dry Tonight, Then Snow and Wintry Mix in the Forecast for Mid-michigan, Tuesday is a First Alert Weather Day


Temperatures drop back into the teens tonight, making for a cold night, but a little milder than some of the evenings we’ve experienced in recent weeks. Winds will be a little lighter tonight, so wind chills should remain just over zero. Expect dry and calm weather with a gradual increase of clouds tonight.

On Monday, temperatures rise somewhat but remain at or around freezing in the high 20s and lower 30s.

Moisture will build during the day, with a risk of light snow showers on Monday. These showers should only produce minor accumulations of an inch to two. Some places may also get freezing drizzle on occasion. Untreated roadways may become slippery in temperatures near or below freezing.


The First Alert Weather Team has declared Tuesday a First Alert Weather Day owing to the possibility of hazardous travel as another bout of measurable snow moves into Mid-Michigan, most likely accompanied by some wintry mix.

We expect a couple of inches of snow to fall between early Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon for those north of I-69, with all snow (likely no mixing).

Near and south of I-69, a wintry combination of freezing rain, sleet, and snow is likely. Rain is also predicted Tuesday afternoon and evening as warm air sweeps in. As a result of the warmer air creeping into locations close to and south of I-69, slippery travel will be feasible only for limited periods when temperatures are low enough.

Expect smooth travel on Tuesday, especially for those north of I-69.
