Michigan Weather Could Be Hazardous for Sunday, Monday Travel
Thanksgiving has come and gone, and if you’re traveling this weekend, chances are you still have to come back from your destination. Well, the good news is that you’ve had a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend in Michigan, with blue skies and no snow. It’s been very cold, but that’s expected in November in Michigan. Now, if you have to travel back home on Sunday (Nov. 26), you should take note of this weather forecast, because Michigan weather could be hazardous for Sunday travel. I’m glad that I don’t have to travel on Sunday, but if you do, here’s the scoop.
Michigan Weather Could Be Hazardous for Sunday Travel
According to the National Weather Service, lower Michigan is going to get its first real measurable snow on Sunday. As with all of these systems, the storm system will start west and head east. So, Grand Rapids will be the first to see some snow. It will be quiet on Saturday. But, then clouds will start to cloud up the skies, bringing a low pressure system and, yes, the white stuff.
Snow will start to move in late Saturday night around the western part of the state, especially near Muskegon to Big Rapids. Then, bigger snow showers will start to spread across West Michigan on Sunday morning and continue towards Lansing and Detroit for the rest of the day. With cold temperatures, this snow is expected to stick around, too. The largest travel areas with the chance of hazardous weather include the area between I-96 and I-94. That’s especially during the Monday morning commute.
While all of this precipitation will be snow, since it will be so cold, at least it shouldn’t be a foot of snow or anything like that. Most of West Michigan is expected to get 1-2″ of snow, while some areas going more north could get 4-6″ by the end of the weekend. As for mid-Michigan and Southeastern Michigan, near Detroit, expect about an inch of snow or a bit more. Stay safe.
