LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - We continue to track a weak area of low pressure that will move through the region today and it will likely bring some wet snow possibly mixed in with rain late this afternoon. This will likely impact the evening commute.

First Alert: Clouds returned quickly Friday morning but we will stay dry into the early afternoon but around 3 or 4 p.m., some snow showers will begin to move into the area from west to east. It is possible that some rain mixes in early on because afternoon temperatures will be in the middle to upper 30s. Some of the heaviest precip. will happen south of Lansing towards the I-94 corridor. This is not expected to be a major snowfall event by any means but a coating up to two inches of very wet snow will be possible, mainly on grassy surfaces. Roads for the most part will be just wet but after the sun goes down, a few slick spots will develop. After the snow ends by around 9 p.m., some freezing drizzle will be possible which could lead to additional icy spots on the roads Friday night.

The weekend will start out dry with mostly cloudy skies through the day on Saturday. Temperatures will warm into the upper 30s. Saturday night, a weak system will be passing through the Great Lakes region and this will bring a few snow showers. This will not create any major issues and only a dusting of snow is possible by Sunday morning. Anything that does stick will quickly melt away on Sunday as temperatures climb to the lower 40s under mostly cloudy skies.

Next week is quiet to start for Monday and Tuesday but a much stronger system is expected to move into the region on Wednesday. Right now, it looks like this will start off as rain through the day on Wednesday with temperatures in the 40s but colder air will wrap in behind this system so some snow showers will be possible on Thursday. Winds will be an issue with this system as well so we will need to keep a very close eye on this system in the days to come.
