A storm system now centered over southeastern Lower Michigan will move slowly eastward across Lake Erie this afternoon. Scattered rain showers will continue across the region through the morning hours. The rain could be mixed with wet snow or sleet at times.
Colder air will wrap around the backside of this system and spread across our area this afternoon. This will cause temperatures to fall a little and rain showers will begin to change over to snow showers. The activity will remain fairly scattered through this afternoon.
The precipitation will increase and change over to snow tonight as a cold front moves across the area. Some accumulation of snow is possible, especially across the snow belt. Lows tonight will fall into the mid to upper 20s.
On Thursday, snow is likely with some additional accumulation possible. High temperatures will reach the low 30s.
The storm system will phase with a storm over New York state late Thursday, then track slowly eastward to the New England coast on Friday. A trough of low pressure will extend westward into the eastern Great Lakes. Snow showers will continue Thursday night and Friday. Highs on Friday will be around 30 degrees.
The activity will finally begin to wind down on Saturday as high pressure builds across the region. Highs will reach the upper 20s on Saturday.
