As high pressure builds into our area on Friday, this will give us sunny skies for most of the day Friday and even a bit on Saturday as well before the clouds roll back in. Saturday night that high pressure is going to move completely out of the area, allowing for clouds to lurk back in to the Great Lakes region during the overnight on Saturday and throughout Sunday ahead of a low pressure system. As the low moves into our region it will bring the chance for about 1 inch of snow on Monday and will stall for another day or so, allowing for more snow on Tuesday with about another inch of accumulation. Make sure you’re prepared for the snow on Monday. Pro-tip: If you park your car outside, put your windshield wipers up on Sunday and Monday night to prevent them from freezing to your windshield.
