A storm moving across the plains will bring some warm air to the Great Lakes. During the transition from the frigid 20s to the mild 40s some precipitation will likely begin with snow flurries Wednesday evening. Overnight as the warm air arrives over the cold ground some freezing rain will likely mix in with the flurries. The morning commute could be slick with the mixed precipitation. As the warm air spreads north we transition over to all rain during the early afternoon.
Wednesday night and Thursday, several inches of snow are possible across part of Northern Lower Michigan, mainly north of Big Rapids and Mount Pleasant.
For West Michigan, rain showers with temperatures above freezing continue into Friday. We finally warm to near normal levels (low 50s) by the end of March and into the first part of April. However that may be short lived as the long range outlook from 2 to 8 April, indicates that another blast of cold air is possible.
