JR’s Thursday Night Weather Report |

We had a terrific summer day across Mid-Michigan on Thursday. Bright sunshine in lower Michigan sent temperatures soaring into the 80s. A few points in the ABC12 viewing area even managed to touch the 90 degree mark. With plenty of starlight expected overnight, temperatures will drop back into the 50s early Friday morning. Keep in mind that our “normal” low temperatures are just 45.

If you liked what Mother Nature prepared for us on Thursday, you’ll probably go Friday too. With beautiful skies to start the day, temperatures will get off to a good start and will likely flirt with 80 by noon. For the afternoon, we will see some cloudiness developing, but that will not be enough to contain the temperatures. The highs for the day will again cross into the 80s, with a few points touching 90s.

The weekend will see the return of a few chances of rain, but I don’t see any washout. Saturday will start with partly sunny and dry conditions. During the afternoon, a cool front will move in from the west, so we will see showers and scattered thunderstorms developing. Behind the front, a few more showers could emerge on Sunday, but not everyone will see them. We’ll tell you what the showers will do to our temperatures on ABC12 News. -JR
