It looks like the threat of severe weather is fading somewhat. I will keep the rest of the night and Saturday designated as “alert days”, but stay tuned to Kevin Goff Saturday morning for the latest on our storm potential. Gusty winds and locally heavy showers will remain a possibility as a slow cool front moves into lower Michigan.
Temperatures on Saturday will start around the 60 degree mark. For the afternoon, highs will range from the upper 60 degrees to near 70 degrees. Periods of rain and thunderstorms will continue as the front gradually moves eastward. Rain showers will persist even into our Sunday morning across Mid-Michigan. We should end the day with some sunshine and a west-northwest wind. Highs on Sunday will be mostly in the 60s. A few spots may stay a bit cooler than that.
The rainy spells we are seeing through Saturday evening will cause parts of our region to see over an inch of rain. Monday and Tuesday will give us the opportunity to dry out a bit. Monday will feature bright sunshine, while more clouds will filter overhead for Tuesday. Highs will likely be a bit below our 70 degree average. On ABC12 News, we’ll be tracking the potential for more widespread rain as we work toward Memorial Day weekend. -JR
