Yet another blast of Arctic air

This next blast of Arctic air will be reminiscent of what we experienced at times in January.

Colder air will continue to filter into the area overnight behind a strong cold front.

A few flurries could slide across the area from Lake Michigan during the day on Wednesday, but no accumulation is expected.

Another Arctic cold front dropping in from the north/northwest on Wednesday night could bring some minor accumulations to the area on the order of an inch or so.

Behind this front, highs are only expected to reach 9° on Thursday afternoon.

If this verifies, we'd set a new record low maximum temperature for Thursday the 27th of February (the old record is 15° in Flint).

By Friday morning, high pressure will be nearly overhead.

This will lead to clear skies, light winds, and temperatures that are expected to drop to around -12°.

This would also set a new record -- a record low minumum this time. (The temperature to beat is -6° set back in 1994.)

Somewhat milder air is expected over the weekend, but temperatures will still be well below our average high and low for this time of year of 37°/20°.
