Snowmobile Trail Conditions 2/5/14 – Snowmobile trails are still in good to very good shape. Groomer driver Keith warns that some corners are icy, so slow down and be careful. Unless something changes, I won’t be updating again this week.
9 & 10 weather:
Snow has started to work into the US-10 and M-20 corridors of the Central L.P. Light to moderate snow will continue along M-20 while much lighter snow will continue along the US-10 corridor. The Northern L.P. and Eastern U.P. continue to be cloudy and quiet this morning with temperatures in the upper single digits to low 20s. They will be more around 5 to 15 degrees by daybreak. Today will be a day of clouds for most of us but snow will exit the Central L.P. around noon and some light lake effect may develop for the immediate Lake Michigan, Lake Superior and Lake Huron shorelines. Winds today will be out of the North at 5-15mph with occasional gusts around 18-20mph. Highs will range from 12-22 degrees. Tonight will be cloudy with a chance for light snow along the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shorelines. Overnight lows will be in the single digits above zero.
Thursday will be gray with some light lake effect for areas along Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. Highs will be in the lower to upper teens. Friday will bring in much drier air and kill any lake snow showers that might be out there. Skies will be mostly to partly sunny with highs in the lower to upper teens. Saturday will be quiet to start and remain that way for the majority of the day. Skies will cloud up and light snow showers will start to move in late in the day. Highs will be in the mid teens to low 20s.
Sunday will be gray with some snow showers working through thanks to a weak low pressure system. Highs will be in the mid teens to low 20s. Monday will be gray with a chance for a bit of lake effect snow. Highs will be in the low teens to low 20s. Tuesday will be mostly to partly sunny as high pressure sets up shop right over us and highs will again be in the teens. -Meteorologist Michael Stevens
