The system that brought us a wintry mess over the weekend just didn't want to leave, but it finally has moved out of here for good. Don't get comfortable with the dry weather just yet, because another wave of rain and snow is knocking on our doorstep.
Current Weather Alerts
Flood Warnings are in effect for the Saginaw River and Cass River until further notice.

After dealing with those pesky snow showers, the precipitation has finally moved out of the region. Cloud cover will dominate our skies for tonight, with a few breaks expected going through the overnight period.
Low temperatures tonight will drop in the upper 20s, with winds coming out of the west sustained from 5 to 10 miles per hour.
It'll be a cold start to our day with temperatures struggling in the 20s and 30s. The winds will generally be light, so that will give us some relief for our wind chill values. At least the first half of the day will be dry, before our next disturbance rushes across Michigan for Wednesday night and into Thursday morning. We break it down below.
Another Wintry Round Wednesday & Thursday
When you happen to see any sunshine during the day on Wednesday, cherish it, as our next system will be quickly on its heels. We will stay dry through much of the day, but rain and some snow will move in around or just after the evening drive tomorrow.
With that late arrival, that storm system will be working its way through when temperatures are on the downswing. Meaning a changeover to snow on Wednesday night into Thursday. You may want to keep an eye on the Thursday morning commute and give yourself a few extra minutes in just to be safe.
Thankfully, this system should be far more progressive, and won't linger like the storm of this past weekend. Still, an inch of snow or less looks reasonable for many in Mid-Michigan, with some areas possibly climbing a bit higher than that towards 2-3". There's still some wiggle going on as to where this ultimately tracks, but south of the Bay has a greater chance for precipitation.
Snow will be most widespread during the morning and like our Tuesday, should taper off into the afternoon and evening. Once we're done, we're done for a few days through the weekend. Be sure to check that out in your First Warn 5 7-Day Forecast!
