JR’s Monday Night Weather Report | Provide

A rather chilly setting held in mid-Michigan on Monday as temperatures stayed in the high 50s for much of the day. Only a few spots managed to fight past the 60 degree mark. Winds from Lake Huron offset our partly sunny skies. Partly cloudy skies are expected to continue overnight as east-northeast breezes prevail. Low temperatures early Tuesday morning will be in the 30s, with some frost possible in the north, below 40 degrees.

Temperatures on Tuesday will again reach below average levels, even with slightly clearer skies forecast. Light northeasterly winds will only allow temperatures in the 40’s at first, to drop into the 60’s for the afternoon. Our “normal” high temperature for this time of year is around 71 degrees. Temperatures along the shoreline areas of Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron will remain cooler than elsewhere.

As the winds shift from the southeast on Wednesday, we will begin to see warmer air moving into the ABC12 viewing area. We will also see the return of the rain. Wednesday will start out dry, but showers and thunderstorms will develop into and throughout the afternoon. Once here showers will continue intermittently through Thursday. In fact, some showers are likely to persist Friday as well. Big improvements are expected for the holiday weekend. We’ll have those details for you on ABC12 News. -JR
