Temperatures dropped back into the 60s across central Michigan on Friday, but it was a sticky day nonetheless. Humidity levels remained quite high as scattered pockets of rain continued into the afternoon. Rainfall totals exceeded an inch in some areas with a few heavy downpours locally. For the night period, the trend will be towards the breaking of the clouds. Early Saturday morning low temperatures will range from the 40s to around 50.
Saturday is shaping up to be a beautiful day. We will have partly sunny skies and light, variable winds. It’s always a nice combination. Temperatures will peak in the lower 70s, which is exactly where we should be. The trend for the afternoon will be for the accumulation of a few clouds. At the end of the day, a few light showers will be possible for the northern parts of the ABC12 observation area. The best chance of a few light showers for all of us will come Saturday evening.
We will find some sun on Sunday and the winds will blow from the south. This combination should push our high temperatures about ten degrees above what we expect for Saturday. The warming will not stop there. Stronger south-southwest winds will push temperatures up to midsummer levels for Memorial Day and Tuesday. After that, we will calm down a bit. We’ll tell you how much on ABC12 News. -JR
