After a rainy, mild Thanksgiving with temperatures in the upper 40s, a strong cold front blew through last night changing rain showers to flurries. Temperatures plummeted into the upper 20s Friday morning and held nearly steady all day, with a gusty northwesterly flow.

Lake-effect/enhanced snow showers that left an early coating Friday and slick spots ended by midday, and the wind will diminish tonight, as low pressure pulls away across the Canadian Maritimes.

The sky will partially by Saturday morning, with a cold start in the mid- to upper 20s. High pressure south of Ohio will shift east or the region during the day, resulting in increasing clouds and a southeast breeze. Temperatures will edge up toward 40 degrees.

The weather in Ann Arbor for The Game will turn wintry late in the game, with cloudy skies at kickoff and a little snow possible during the second half. Temperatures will be just above freezing. Farther south, a rain/snow mix will impact the northern portion of the state late Saturday, with a few light showers reaching central Ohio overnight.

An Alberta Clipper diving southeast across Lower Michigan and northern Ohio will push a cold front through early Sunday, with any moisture changing to flurries, accompanied by frisk winds and temperatures hovering in the low to mid-30s.

The weather looks tranquil next week with moderating temperatures. Highs will reach into the 40s, with some cloudiness Monday into early Tuesday as a weak system passes by to the north. The end of the week will see temperatures rebound into the 50s, under partly cloudy skies to start December.
