No white Christmas but warmer than usual temperatures expected
Light snow showers may be the closest thing you can expect for a white Christmas tomorrow. The forecast for today is for a partly sunny day with high temperatures in the upper 30s. It will be clear with lows in the 20s tonight.
For Christmas day, the forecast is for a breezy, partly sunny day with high temperatures in the low 40s and west winds 15 to 25 mph. The chance of snow is 30 percent.
Snow showers overnight caused some slick roads and some spinout accidents on area freeeways, but a dispatcher with the Michigan State Police said no road closures were necessary.
Temperatures will stay close to 40 degrees into next week and be partly sunny through Thursday. There will be a chance of rain and snow showers Monday night and into Tuesday.
For those despondent over not having a white Christmas, take heart in the fact that temperatures are unseasonably warm for this time of year. The normal high is 34 degrees with the normal low of 21 degrees.
Winter Solstice occurred this past Thursday, and that means the days slowly begin getting longer again. Sunrise will be at 8:01 a.m. tomorrow and sunset at 5:07 p.m.
