For anyone heading to the Tahquamenon Country Sled Dog Race, you may want to bring sunglasses to protect your eyes from the glare off the snow.

Some light snow showers are likely for much of the UP. Lows will be in the 10s to low 20s. Snow should transition into mainly lake effect for Sunday morning. Sunday won't see much snow.

Lows will be seasonably cold in the 0s to low 10s. A mild, but windy Monday is likely. Monday will be the start of a warming trend. Mid 30s are likely for highs through Thursday, so expect some snow to melt. The week ahead looks to have periodic light snow showers in between some sunnier spots. Thursday should see the most snow in the extended forecast. For the latest, please join me on the Late News and on Facebook!
