Wet Thursday; Becoming colder Friday

High temperatures today reached the middle 40s across Northeast Michigan. Some breaks of sunshine in the afternoon and light winds from the south helped the temperatures climb a few degrees above ‘normal.’ Temperatures will be similar tomorrow, but the dry conditions will not last.

Moisture currently producing rain in the southern Plains will move toward the Great Lakes. This will bring rain to our area beginning Thursday morning, and periods of rain will last almost all day. At night, a few flurries are possible as temperatures begin to drop.

Rain is likely for most of Thursday. Morning temperatures will be in the middle 30s. Afternoon winds out of the south will bring high temperatures into the middle 40s. Temperatures will remain in the 40s into the early-evening. Once winds shift out of the northwest, temperatures will drop to the upper 20s by early Friday.

Rainfall amounts for Thursday will likely end up close to a half-inch for much of Northeast Michigan. While mainly rain is expected, a few flurries will be possible Thursday night as the temperatures drop.

Tomorrow will be wet with high temperatures around the middle 40s. Winds out of the northwest will bring colder temperatures Thursday night and Friday. Friday will start with early-morning lows near 29 degrees, and highs will reach only the lower to middle 30s. Over the weekend, warmer and brighter weather are forecast. Mostly sunny skies are expected on Saturday with highs close to 40 degrees.
