Mid-Michigan is in for another blast of cold weather including high winds, rain, and our first sight of snow this season. According to mlive.com, we should start to see and feel a difference beginning Wednesday night. A cold front will move through after a beautiful day, bringing some overnight rain. Wind gusts are expected to pick up and reach the 25-35 MPH range.

Thursday will start cool and wet, but winds pick up even more with gusts 35-45 MPH possible, sending temperatures on a downfall throughout the day. The windy conditions stick around through Friday, and temperatures will be lucky to get out of the 30's. This is when we see our first chance of lake effect snow showers.

Due to the extended period of strong winds, downed trees and limbs are possible as well as power outages.

But, there is good news! No accumulating snow is expected, and weekend sunshine will get temperatures back towards the 50 degree range for Saturday and Sunday.
