We’ve had a lot of cold the past few days, and our Monday was no different. Temperatures ranged from low to below zero numbers to start the day and only struggled to approach the 20 degree mark for the afternoon. We have seen sunshine for the day and we will see starlight during the night. Temperatures early Tuesday morning will still be cold, but should manage to stay above freezing as winds become light and variable.
Tuesday will be relatively calm and a little warmer. We will have partly sunny skies at certain times of the day and the winds will shift to the southeast. Winds will be very light at the start of the day, but will gradually increase throughout the day. High temperatures for the day will be in the mid to upper 20s. It’s a little better than what we’ve been doing since last week, but it’s still a little below average. Our average high temperature is now just at freezing point.
A stronger southwesterly wind will combine with some early Wednesday sunshine to give readings a strong start to the day. Eventually, temperatures will easily move into the 40s as our cloud cover thickens rapidly. It will be rain developing in Mid-Michigan as we progress through the day. As a cold front moves to our east, rain will change to snow in the northwest, in southeast fashion Wednesday evening through Thursday morning. We’ll be following this storm for you, and letting you know what impacts it could have on travel, on ABC12 News. -JR
