Hopefully you enjoyed the warm weather while it lasted, because it’s all coming to an end. After a week of unseasonably warm temperatures throughout Michigan, we’re in for a weekend of cold and snow.

According to the forecast at Weather.com, Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 18 and 19) will bring snow to much of Michigan. The heaviest section of snow will be at the southeast corner of Lower Michigan, including Detroit and Ann Arbor. The snow will start Saturday morning and run through that night.

Even if you don’t live in those cities, expect some Saturday snow, as much of Michigan is predicted to get at least some snowfall. The more northern you go, the more snow is expected, and the west side of the state is expected to get some lake-effect snow.

Sunday won’t bring much snowfall, but temperatures will be frigid across Michigan. Lows will be in the 20s and highs in the 30, which might sound super cold, but it’s actually pretty normal this time of year. We’ve been spoiled by those warm temperatures for too long, at least Mother Nature thinks so.

Most of Michigan actually hasn’t seen hardly any of the white stuff yet this season. That’s fairly normal, as the big snows often come in January and February, but hitting 60 degrees is not normal. Many Michigan cities hit 60 this week, and I don’t know about you, but I wish we could just keep temperatures right around there for the rest of the season.
