SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

After such a nice weekend, Michigan residents were quickly reminded on Monday and Tuesday morning that winter is indeed approaching, thanks to a strong cold front.

Most across mid-Michigan saw flurries and a few snow showers of less than half an inch. Many only received a dusting of snow, which was mostly on vehicles. With temperatures below freezing, some roads became slick and hazardous.  

Other towns across the state did see accumulating snow. On Monday, residents in Houghton County in the UP reported up to  5.5" of snow.  In Northern Lower, Cheboygan reported 3.5", while Petoskey received just under 2".

Back on Oct. 30, many saw a rain/snow mix, along with sleet. With the exception of the Thumb, this is one of the first times we've seen pure snow this fall. The average date that Saginaw first receives measurable snowfall of .1" or greater is Nov. 15. For Flint, it is Nov. 16.

This is the only taste of winter that we will have this week, as we are expecting periods of sun and clouds for the next few days with temps throughout the 40s.
