Thursday started with clear and freezing conditions across Mid-Michigan. Some record lows were also dropped, as readings stabilized in the early morning 20s. Readings recovered fairly well for the afternoon as wall-to-wall sunshine held through the day. We will have another chance to have frost early Friday morning. Low temperatures will be a little better than what we had to endure on Thursday morning, but still a little below zero in most areas.
Winds will blow a little more southerly over the next few days. This will result in a modest and gradual warm-up during and over the weekend. Mostly to partly sunny skies on Friday will help temperatures approach the 60 degree mark. High temperatures on Saturday are forecast to move into the 60s for many of us, although thicker cloud cover makes a return to the ABC12 viewing area. By Saturday evening, a few rain showers will arrive from the west.
Pockets of rain are expected on Sunday, but the day will not be catastrophic. South to southwest winds will be enough to bring temperatures back into the 60s despite the showers. The highs will be quite close to the 62 average for the first of next week as well. We will have sunny spells for Monday, but more rain will move in for Tuesday. On ABC12 News, we’ll let you know where this rain will take our temperatures for the weekend period. -JR
