After another frosty start to the day, bright sunshine on Friday helped temperatures recover nicely in Mid-Michigan. Readings during the afternoon approached the 60 degree mark in some areas, but an easterly breeze again held temperatures back along the shores of Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron. The coldest air has moved to our east now, so even with a good bit of starlight tonight, early Saturday morning temperatures will be warmer than what we have had the past two mornings.
Our best sunburn this weekend will come on Saturday morning. Clouds will increase in the ABC12 viewing area throughout the day as our next rainmaker approaches from the west. By the end of the day, we will have rain in our area. Once here, periods of rain will continue through Saturday evening. Saturday’s winds will be from the east-southeast, so riverside communities will again remain cooler than the rest of the region. Away from the water’s edge, highs will be around 60 degrees.
Sunday will be mostly cloudy and we will continue to have a chance of showers. The best luck will come early in the day. With a period of dry conditions expected through the afternoon, highs will again manage to move into the 60s for most of us. A drop or two will be possible on Monday, but it looks like our best chance of rain for next week will come on Tuesday. On ABC12 News, we’ll let you know what the temperatures will do behind the rain. -JR
