Groomer driver Keith says that if you draw an East/West line, one mile south of Frederic (so about Batterson Rd.), the trails are snirt. Anything north of that line has more snow and will be groomed. He said he’s never had weird conditions like that – it’s usually all or nothing. But in this case, he is only going to groom the northern section.

More sunshine for the second half of the day with only some lingering cloud cover. We will have the chance for some lake effect clouds/flurries from Lake Huron. We had a wide range of temperatures this morning and we will keep a wide range with highs in the teens for the U.P. and 20s to near 30 in the L.P. Winds will remain very light from the east causing some lake effect clouds and possibly a flurry or light snow shower off of Lake Huron. Tonight will be partly to mostly clear for the U.P. and Northern Lower with clouds lingering for the Central Lower. Another wide range in temperatures with single digits in the U.P. and teens for the L.P.
