Rainy tomorrow; Drier Friday and Saturday

High temperatures today reached the lower 50s near the Lake Huron as winds out of the east (off of the lake) contributed to cooler temperatures, but reached the upper 50s farther inland. The morning started with some sunshine, then cloud cover increased in the afternoon ahead of some evening rainfall.

A low pressure system over Iowa is spreading soaking rain north of its center. This rain will move through our area this evening, and more rain is on the way in later tonight through tomorrow. The heaviest rain will likely occur tonight and early tomorrow. Total rainfall amounts of 1-1.5 inches tonight through tomorrow evening are forecast across Northeast Michigan. The center of the storm system will travel on a path taking it just north of our area — this track will bring warmer air briefly into our area late tomorrow.

Rain is likely tomorrow morning and afternoon, then the chance of rain will decrease tomorrow evening. High temperatures will spike close to 60 degrees in the early evening. Most of the day will not be close to 60 degrees — winds will start out of the east tomorrow morning, shift out of the south in the early evening (bringing a short-lived spike in temperatures), then become out of the west on Friday.

After soaking rain tonight and tomorrow, the chance of rain sharply decreases for Friday and Saturday. Dry weather and some sunshine are expected both Friday and Saturday. A few showers are possible Sunday, but unlikely to be a washout.

You will want an umbrella or rain jacket tomorrow with the damp weather in our area. Cloud cover will gradually decrease on Friday with high temperatures close to 50 degrees. Temperatures will rebound to 60 degrees on Saturday with partly cloudy skies and a light breeze out of the southwest.
