Windy weekend; Getting colder Sunday with rain changing to snow

Dry weather extends across much of the Midwest, and Northeast Michigan will see mostly clear skies Friday night and most of Saturday. A cold front in the northwestern states will move east, bringing unsettled and windy weather on Sunday.

Winds will come from the south Saturday, providing warmer temperatures, and the breeze will be very noticeable at 15-25 mph.

Sunday’s cold front will cause winds to shift out of the northwest. That wind direction will drive colder temperatures into our area. Winds will become stronger during the afternoon and evening, blowing at 20-30 mph.

Saturday: Mostly clear then evening cloud cover. Early-morning temperatures will get off to a cool start, in the middle 20s. Late-morning temperatures will rise to the lower/middle 30s. Afternoon highs will warm to about 48 degrees. Evening temperatures will hover in the lower/middle 40s.

Sunday: Dropping temperatures, strong winds, rain showers will change to late-day snow showers. Temperatures will be near 40 degrees in the early-morning. Afternoon temperatures will fall to the middle 30s.

Monday: Mostly cloudy. Predawn temperatures will drop to the middle 20s. Late-morning temperatures will climb to the middle 40s. Afternoon highs will be around 44 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the upper 30s.

Plenty of sunshine is in the forecast for the middle of next week with warmer temperatures. For the rest of Northeast Michigan’s weather forecast, watch the latest weather video by clicking the weather tab at the top of the page.
