Trails are being rated as “fair at best” by groomer driver Keith. There is snow and ice on the trails – very, very icy. So if you’re going to ride, be careful. He said the western part of the county has more snow on the trails. They aren’t grooming.
TV 9 & 10 weather forecast:
Today: We have touch of snow pushing through from North to South this morning and this will lead to a skiff to maybe an inch of accumulation in areas by daybreak. This could help many roads with a little bit of grip after freezing drizzle has created slick roads. Temperatures are in the mid teens to low 30s but you will see these temperatures fall through the morning and eventually stay steady in the low teens to mid 20s today. Winds are out of the North/Northwest at 10-20mph with gusts around 25mph. Today will start with some early morning light snow but turn partly sunny with isolated lake effect. Areas that could see a little snow will be closer to the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shorelines. Highs will be in the low teens to mid 20s with winds out of the North/Northwest at 5-15mph.
Tonight: Skies will be partly cloudy to mostly clear tonight with isolated flurries in spots to start the night off. Overnight lows will range from 2 below to 11 above with light winds.
Thursday: Skies will start off with some sunshine Thursday but clouds will move in for the afternoon and evening with a chance for some light snow in spots. Highs will be in the low 20s to low 30s.
Friday & The Weekend: We will again have some isolated lake effect Friday with most areas seeing partly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid teens to low 30s to end the work week. Saturday is looking cloudy with scattered light snow showers in the Lower Peninsula as a storm system brushes by to our South. Highs will range from 8 to 20 degrees and accumulations as of right now should be minor. Sunday is looking cloudy with lake effect snow. It is going to be very cold with highs ranging from 0 to 15 degrees.
Next Week: Monday is looking a bit better with mostly to partly sunny skies. Highs will range from 10 to 18 degrees. Tuesday is looking cloudy with scattered snow showers as another storm will miss Northern Michigan to our South.
