Today & Tonight

Snow showers will be passing through intermittently throughout your Thursday. The most consistent snow will be in areas to the north and west that are closest to Lake Michigan, places like Roscommon County that are under the advisory.

Accumulations for most of Mid-Michigan, are expected to be less than 1" through Saturday morning. But areas that see persistent snow may pick up an inch or two. These favorable locations are areas in the counties of Clare, Isabella, and Gratiot, as well as parts of the Thumb that receive some influence from the Saginaw Bay.

The highest accumulations will occur in Roscommon County, with anywhere from 3" to 7" of snow expected through Saturday morning.

It will be blustery throughout the day, with winds out of the west northwest, around 15 to 25 miles per hour, with gusts near 30 MPH at times. Highs will be in the lower 30s, but with the enthusiastic wind flow, wind chills will spend most of the day in the teens.

Lake effect snow showers will continue tonight, with overnight lows falling into the 20s once again. Although still breezy, winds will slow down a bit tonight.
