A high pressure system is drifting off to the east, currently located over Upstate New York. That high pressures system brought sunny skies Wednesday. Now that’s moving east of our area, we’re finally starting to get some warmer temperatures building in. Notice the moisture to our west — in fact, wintry weather extends from Minnesota to the coast of the Gulf of Mexico! Increasing moisture plus east winds off of Lake Huron will contribute to a chance of flurries Thursday.
High temperatures Thursday will reach about 26 degrees, then near 27 degrees Friday. A warming trend will take us through the weekend and into early next week. Winds will pick up out of the south Sunday, helping out that upward trend. For both Saturday and Sunday, highs will climb to about 29 degrees. Early next week, highs will likely warm to the middle and upper 30s.
Thursday: Scattered flurries, some dry periods. Predawn temperatures will drop to about 4 degrees. Morning temperatures will climb to the teens. Afternoon highs will be close to 26 degrees. Evening temperatures will be near 20 degrees or in the upper teens.
Friday: Likely dry and mainly cloudy early, then a chance of scattered flurries in the afternoon-evening. Early-morning temperatures will begin near 10 degrees. Late-morning temperature will get up to around 20 degrees. Afternoon highs will reach about 27 degrees. Evening temperatures will cool from the lower 20s to the upper teens.
Saturday: The brighter half of the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds. Early-morning lows will be near 8 degrees. Late-morning temperatures will rise to the lower 20s. Afternoon highs will be about 29 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the lower 20s to around 20 degrees.
