April showers bring snow instead of flowers

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.”

Rozanski said the variability in the weather often happens during both fall and spring seasons.

“We’re in this pattern and eventually these systems will move east and there will be some lingering cold air in Canada that will get brought in, in the back side,” he said. “Real typical trend is warm air ahead of it as it lift up in front of us, then cold air in the back side.”

Rozanski says after a rainy and cool spring, the summer is expected to see generally seasonable temperatures.
