JR Wednesday night weather report

Wednesday was another beauty of a day through Mid-Michigan. Temperatures started out on a cool, seasonal note, but readings quickly climbed thanks to the blazing sun and light, variable wind conditions. Peaks of the day remained in the 60s along the Lake Huron shoreline, while outside the water’s edge some 70 were recorded. With clear skies again this evening, early Thursday morning lows will vary between 40 and 50. Our “normal” low is now 46 degrees.

Our weather winning streak will continue as we close the work week. Bright sunshine and light easterly breezes on Thursday will bring temperatures up to around 70 degrees for the afternoon. By Thursday evening, the winds will gradually blow south. This should allow slightly warmer temperatures on Friday. Most of us will see the readings retreat into the lower 70s as plenty of sun continues to shine over observation area ABC12.

With southwest winds and some sunshine on Saturday, the entire region will see high pressure moving easily into the 1970s. The trend for the afternoon will be increasing cloudiness. By the end of the day, rain will arrive from the west. Once here we will likely see intermittent type precipitation continuing through Sunday. On ABC12 News, we’ll let you know if the showers will persist during the work week and how far the temperatures will drop when the rain does fall. – JR
