SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - Scattered snow has moved through this morning which has provided us with a quick coating of snow in a few spots! Roadways have just remained wet, they’ll stay in that condition into the afternoon hours as well.

The weekend will see the next best chance of widespread snow on Sunday. This system does not look to bring a lot of snow to Mid-Michigan though, so any impacts on Sunday should also be kept at a minimal end.

Afternoon

Those scattered snow showers will start to taper off during the early afternoon leaving drier weather by dinnertime. A flurry or two may try to pop up again into the evening, but there’s no need to adjust or cancel any plans you might have for later on.

Temperatures will gradually fall through the rest of the afternoon, so our high temperatures have technically been achieved already. We’ll be closer to 32 degrees at noon, then around 30 degrees for the afternoon bus stops. The wind today will be from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph. That wind direction is why temperatures are falling through the day.

Friday will see temperatures gradually fall through the day.

Tonight

A few flurries may still be leftover into tonight, otherwise clouds just hang on across Mid-Michigan. Lows will fall to around 26 degrees, so we’ll start to feel some colder weather compared to most of our lows from this week. The wind tonight will be from the west northwest at 5 to 10 mph.

Friday night will see lows into the 20s for everyone in Mid-Michigan.

Weekend Outlook

We’ve added the small chance for a few flurries back into Saturday, but there’s no need to change or cancel any plans because of that! It will be dry for almost the whole day, just more cloud coverage still hangs on. Highs on Saturday will reach up to around 33 degrees.

Sunday will see the next round of snow move in, but totals will be on the lower-end. There won’t be as much moisture for this system to take advantage of, but temperatures on Sunday will also still be borderline on freezing which will keep accumulations low. We’re expecting around 1″, possibly 2″ in localized areas where snow showers can overperform.

That snow on Sunday will move in during the morning hours and last well into the afternoon as just a steady snow. Expect that snow to come to an end after sundown.
