Justin Liles: Finally starting to turn the corner
Our weather is finally going to take a turn in the right direction for us. This evening will continue to see some light snow along with breezy conditions. We may even see some spotty light flurries Thursday. Most of this is likely going to stay to the north. Sunshine will take over Friday and into the weekend. A large ridge of warmer air build in from the west by the end of the weekend and into the beginning of next week.
There is a chance of some light rain in northern Wisconsin and the U.P. of Michigan on Sunday. By Monday and Tuesday, spring finally looks to arrive. Temperatures are expected to climb into the upper 50s and 60s. This is going to be 15° to 20° above normal. The problem we see with temperatures this warm will be the rapid snowmelt and flooding we could see as a result. Most of the region still has over 30” of waterlogged snow. Rivers and lakes are expected to rise quickly as a result.
