Autumn in Michigan is an unpredictable, unsettled time when it comes weather. If you need proof, here it comes.

The Warming Trend Will Continue And Then Slam Back By Saturday

The sunny weather we've been enjoying this fall has been great, but as Gordon Lightfoot taught us, in his epic Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, 'the gales of November come early', and that usually means lake effect snow.

After we peak with what may be our final near 70 degree day of the year on Thursday, temps will take a tumble, and the shifting winds will bring some lake effect snow showers on Saturday, so if you're headed out for high school playoff football, grab an warm jacket.

The good news is that as of this writing, it appears there won't be any serious accumulation of snow with this event. But my take is, if it's gonna snow, it might as well stay, right?
