Much-needed pockets of precipitation and a few strong storms rolled through central Michigan on Monday. Some areas received a good amount of rain, while others didn’t see much. In a few cases, too much rain fell too quickly. Flooding occurred in parts of Saginaw and Tuscola counties during the afternoon. Scattered and persistent showers will end in the evening and our clouds will break overnight. Tuesday morning lows will be around 60 degrees.
Tuesday promises to be a day of good weather. We should see good sunshine in most areas for most of the day. Winds will blow from north to northeast at a gentle, gentle pace of less than 10 mph. High temperatures for the day will range from the upper 70s to the lower 80s. This is exactly where we should be as we begin August.
Southwesterly winds on Wednesday will bring warmer, wetter air to central Michigan. The air will be warm enough to withstand temperatures above 90 degrees. The only question will be whether we will see enough sun to get there. There will be a chance of another round of showers and thunderstorms during the day. At this time, it looks like the pattern will persist through our Thursday, so decent rainfall totals will be possible. We’ll tell you how the weekend goes on ABC12 News. -JR
