Our final all-2011 forecast! How will the year close out for those in Michigan? Let’s find out!
At 11:53pm EST, the temperature in Holland, MI was 38 degrees under overcast skies. An area of low pressure shifting through the Central US will make its’ way from IA through Northern IL and through the Ohio Valley. Precip will be shifting into the area Friday afternoon as some rain showers, but with colder air being pulled in over the Great Lakes, it’s expected to change over to snow showers by late evening. This activity will persist into the overnight hours and trail off during the early morning hours on Saturday, otherwise known as New Years Eve! Most of the daylight hours are expected to be dry and pleasant as a lull between systems shifts over Michigan, so that last second liquor-store trip should be precip-free. Another, stronger low pressure system with accompanying cold front will blow through early Sunday morning, welcoming in 2012 with some more snow showers and gusty winds, but should be after midnight. Enjoy the final days of 2011 fellow readers, may the weather be enjoyable, company be plentiful, and of course, celebrate responsibly!
