The weather across Mid-Michigan on Wednesday wasn’t very good at all. Clouds, showers and an easterly component of the wind all combined to keep temperatures fairly steady in the lower to mid 50s throughout the day. Keep in mind that our “normal” high temperature is now 70 degrees. Any lingering showers will end this evening and the clouds will start to clear late. Early Thursday morning low temperatures will range from upper 40s to lower 50s.
A rapid recovery in temperatures and our general weather chart is expected for Thursday. Overall, we will have a partly sunny setting for the day. Winds will likely reach 10 to 15 mph, with a west-southwest direction. Temperatures will respond well pushing near the 70 degree mark by midday. The highest readings for the afternoon will be in the mid to upper 70s.
Friday will be even warmer. Highs for the day will likely shift into the 80s. We will start the day with some sunshine, but thunderstorms may develop as a cool front heads our way later in the day. We have designated Friday as an “alert day” for this potential storm. The weather system responsible for Friday’s storms may not be in a rush to leave, so more rain seems like a good bet for the weekend. We’ll tell you if the weekend will be a disaster on ABC12 News. -JR
