Forbush Corner: We received a good dose of precipitation this week in the form of snow and rain. All the trails were tilled yesterday and grooming of the classic tracks and skating lane is on-going this morning. The trails look great !!! Everything will be groomed out when we open today at 1 PM.
Hanson Hills: Trails are Amazing!! Fresh Tracks and Skate Lanes on everything except for the RED. Groomer Jason has rolled the RED and is planning on grooming and setting tracks later today.
XC Ski Headquarters: We received 3 to 4 inches of fresh powder yesterday, which is what groomer Henry will need to make all 8 trails ideal. He will snow comb all the skating lanes and set fresh tracks. Trails have a 10 to 13 inch base and there is 14 to 19 inches of snow in the woods. With the cooler temps overnight, the snowpack has firmed up and make for a great day and weekend of skiing!
9 & 10 weather forecast:
This morning things are cloudy with some snow in spots of Northern Michigan. The majority of the snow is falling in the Northern Lower Peninsula once again but as the morning moves on we will see the snow back off a bit. Temperatures this morning range from 11 to 31 degrees with light winds out of the West. Some roads could be a bit slick but just expect typical Winter conditions for your morning commute. As the day moves on we are going to see some isolated snow lingering around for the U.P. and Northern L.P. while the Central L.P. will see partly to mostly cloudy conditions. Highs today are going to be in the mid 20s to some lower to middle 30s. Winds are going to be out of the West at 5-10mph. Overall today is looking to be pretty quiet with a few lingering light snow showers in spots North. Tonight is going to be cloudy with a chance for some light snow. Overnight lows are going to be in the mid teens to mid 20s with light winds.
Saturday is looking cloudy with a chance for some light snow. Highs are again going to be in the mid 20s to mid 30s. Sunday is looking to start quiet but things will start to be a little more active later in the afternoon and evening as a clipper system will move in for Sunday night and Monday. This means that a few light snow showers will be out there in the evening for Northern Michigan. Highs are going to be in the low 20s to upper 30s. Snow showers take over for Monday with some breezy winds to go along with it. Highs are going to be in the mid 20s to upper 30s.
Tuesday is looking cloudy and snowy with highs in the low 20s to low 30s. Wednesday is looking to be cloudy with lake effect snow showers. Highs are going to range from 10 to 22 degrees. Still some light snow in the forecast for Thursday with highs in the mid teens to mid 20s. -Meteorologist Michael Stevens
