JR Wednesday night weather report
Wednesday was another beauty of a day through Mid-Michigan. Temperatures started off on a cool, seasonal note, but readings quickly spiked thanks to the blazing sun and light, variable wind conditions. The day’s highs remained in the 60s along the Lake Huron shoreline, while outside the water’s edge some 70 were recorded. With clear skies again overnight, early Thursday morning lows will vary from 40 to 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 push temperatures up to around 70 degrees for the afternoon. By Thursday evening, the winds will be gradually southerly. 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 southwesterly winds and some sunshine on Saturday, the entire region will see the highs 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
