Warmer Wednesday; More rain Thursday and Friday

A storm system heading into Michigan is bringing snow to the U.P. and will spread rain into Northeast (Lower) Michigan overnight. Rain will continue through the predawn hours early Wednesday. Then it’ll move toward the northeast and we could even see some partial clearing Wednesday afternoon.

Rain will move in from the west overnight. Future Radar shows rain becoming more widespread after midnight and continuing until 5 a.m. After that, rain will move off toward the northeast. There could be a patchy shower before sunrise. Heading toward midday, clouds will begin to break apart.

Highs on Wednesday will reach the middle 50s. A warm front will lift northward through Northern Michigan Thursday, and temperatures will take a while to reach highs in the middle 50s during the late-evening. Temperatures will warm Friday morning to the lower 60s. Then a cold front will come through, causing the temperatures to nosedive late Friday. Saturday’s highs will be much cooler, in the middle 40s.
