Discussion:   Since the Polar Jet is staying to the north of Michigan, there will not be favorable conditions to create cold enough air for lake effect snow to take place Wednesday night. Thursday will have enough lift and moisture in the atmosphere to give way of the possibility of snow showers, but no significant amount of precipitation is expected. Thursday night will transition from scattered snow showers to a possibility of freezing drizzle. Friday will be a normal seasonal day for Michigan, and will give way to the possibility of snow showers (less than one inch accumulation) during the night due to another system making its way toward Michigan. Saturday will consist of snow showers in the morning with an accumulation to about an inch of snow for our area. The southern part of Michigan has a greater chance of seeing higher amounts of accumulation from this system.
