Winter Weather Advisory Thursday Afternoon To Friday Night
It looks like we're going to be kicking off this weekend with a little snow.
It's being listed as a MODERATE winter weather advisory for Thursday afternoon to Friday night.
Break out the shovels folks. Accumulation is expected to be between 3 inches to 5 inches.
This weekend also kicks off a pretty decent stretch of a cold snap that we're going to be stuck in for about 2 weeks.
The first cold blast will blow into Michigan this Friday or Saturday. Right now it appears the peak of the cold will have high temperatures running about 20 degrees colder than average. (MLive)
