Sat, 12 Oct 2013 17:27:09 GMT — We've had above average temperatures almost every day this month so far. Saturday is the first day with rain in five days, and so far, not even a trace of snow this season. The first snow is approaching though. Details near the end. For Saturday, rain and thundershowers are likely along a cold front as it slowly moves east. There could be some moderate rainfall at times. Skies will clear a bit behind it, but it will still be mostly cloudy. Highs will be in the 60s. Saturday night, the rain will likely linger east, but ultimately end overnight and skies will become partly cloudy to mostly clear. Lows will be in the upper 30s inland to mid 40s near the lakes. On Sunday, our streak of warm temperatures ends. Highs will be in the 50s, which is the normal range of highs for this time of year. As high pressure takes over, it will be mostly sunny. Sunday night will be chilly with many lows falling into the 20s inland and mid 30s near the lakes. Skies will be clear. Monday night and Tuesday have chances for widespread rain. More rain is possible for Friday, and that's where the chances for snow come in. This is six days out as of Saturday, and a forecast that far out is subject to extreme change, but for a few days models have been suggesting that it may get cool enough for some frozen precipitation. Friday's temps will likely be around 50 or cooler for highs, which suggests only rain, but at night it could get below freezing for many, meaning a rain and snow mix or possibly just snow. By this time last year, we already had 2.4" of snow in Negaunee Township. The first snow was on October 6, 2012. Such a different October for 2013! We'll be keeping a close eye on Friday's snow potential as it gets closer. Follow me on Facebook and Twitter for more weather info!
