JR Wednesday Night Weather Report | Provide


It’s always nice to see the sun shining over Mid-Michigan, but Wednesday didn’t help much. A strong westerly wind kept temperatures fairly stable in the 1920s for much of the day. Windchill’s values ​​were in the teens. A few flurries also flew here and there, thanks to the lake effect off Lake Michigan. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected for the night period. As the winds move southwards, temperatures will remain fairly stable until the wee hours of our Thursday.

At dawn, readings will go back to the lower 20s. Thursday’s highs will be exactly where they should be – low to mid-30s. The day will start quietly, but some light snow is likely for the afternoon. A light coat, on the order of an inch or so, will be a good bet before the pattern shifts eastward during the evening.

Warmer air will move into observation area ABC12 on Friday. Highs for the day will range from the upper 30s to the lower 40s. After a dry start to the day, it looks like the rain will set in in the afternoon. Once here, we’ll keep the threat of rain in the forecast until Christmas Eve night. By Christmas morning much of our white will have turned wet, but some areas will still manage to have snow on the ground for the holidays. On ABC12 News we will explain the rest of the holiday weekend to you. – JR
