Lots of clouds and some wet roads greeted Mid-Michiganders on Wednesday morning. Showers were very light in most areas, but heavier precipitation was recorded in central parts of the ABC12 viewing area extending from Isabella County to the Great Lake Bay area. The highest totals were up nearly an inch in a few places. The tendency will be for the sky to clear at night. Early Thursday morning lows will hover around the 50 degree mark.
Thursday and Friday promise to be beautiful days. Thursday will be mostly sunny with a light north to northeast breeze. Highs will be in the 70s, up to about 80, but it will be a bit cooler in the thumb and near Lake Huron. Friday will see a few more clouds drift overhead, but the winds will turn from the south. This will allow many more places to see highs in the lower 80s, which is exactly where we should be.
Clouds will increase on Saturday as a fresh batch of rain approaches from the northwest. Northern portions of the area could see rain moving in late in the day. There will be a better chance of rain and thunderstorms Saturday night through Sunday. That said, Sunday doesn’t look like a washout at this point. On ABC12 News, we will also be looking at our chances of precipitation for next week. -JR
