The old adage says April showers bring May flowers, but this year the saying could become April snow it’s time to go!

This year’s April snowfall is breaking records but meteorologists say we may see spring weather soon.

The rollercoaster weather continues this week. Forecasters said temperatures may rise after Wednesday...and then fall again early next week.

Scott Rozanski is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Gaylord.

“Temperatures largely in Northern and Central lower Michigan, generally speaking, somewhere in the mid-to-upper 50s,” he said. “As we head towards Friday, temperatures will probably be creeping up towards that 57 to 60 degree mark as a frontal system comes up into the great lakes for Saturday and Sunday.”

Old man winter has dropped about 100 inches of snow in some Michigan counties already this winter. And, at least one county road commission is starting to feel the pressure.
