JR’s Thursday Night Weather Report | Provide

After a rather cloudy and rainy start, Thursday turned out to be a wonderful spring day. Bright sunshine and light breezes pushed temperatures into the lower 70s across much of central Michigan. A few spots along the shore of the lake remained in the 60s for much of the day as an onshore breeze developed. With partly cloudy to fair skies and light westerly breezes overnight, lows will range from the upper 40 degrees to the lower 50 degrees early Friday morning. That’s about right for this time of year.

Our comfortable weather will continue Friday and Saturday. Friday will be mostly sunny, and highs for the day will be in the low, mid-70s. That too is about right. Westerly winds on Friday will be stronger, with speeds occasionally exceeding 15 mph. We can expect less wind and more clouds for Saturday. Overall, the day will be partly sunny and the west-southwest winds will be less than 10 mph. Highs will be in the lower 70s.

We should manage to see some sun on Sunday, but the day won’t be as bright. We will also carry a chance of some showers. Right now, I don’t think the day will be a wash, so don’t undo any pots you may have done. Thicker clouds and more showers and thunderstorms seem like a good bet for Monday. On ABC12 News, we’ll let you know how long the rain will persist into the new week. -JR
