Good Friday afternoon Mid-Michigan! We hope that your Friday has been going well and that you’re getting outside to enjoy this weather after the rain! We do have rain to talk about again for tonight, but the good news with that is that rain will be overnight, so any evening plans you may have will still be intact weather-wise.
We’re breaking into plenty of sunshine at this lunch hour! The system that brought us all of the rain and clouds mid-week is continuing to depart to the east, allowing us to continue with more sunshine through the afternoon and into the evening. A few fair weather clouds will pass, but we stay dry. Highs will respond to the sunshine by reaching the upper 60s and low 70s by peak heating this afternoon. The only catch is that the wind today will be brisk at times out of the west at 10 to 20 mph.
Any evening plans look good, especially for Friday Night Lights. Click here for the forecast for some games around the area! Sunset will be around 7:29 PM with the rain holding off until closer to the 11:00 PM to midnight hour.
Clouds will increase quickly overnight and showers, with perhaps a rumble of thunder, will quickly move into the area. These showers shouldn’t have a major impact, with this cold front being much more progressive. Rainfall amounts should remain 0.50″ or less, with most areas under 0.25″.
Overnight lows will be in the 40s and 50s, a touch milder than the last handful of nights. The wind will also still be brisk at times between 10 to 20 mph shifting from the west to the southwest.
Saturday & Sunday
Showers should end for the most part by lunchtime Saturday and we’ll sneak in some sunshine behind the front with partly sunny skies. Highs should land in the 60s on Saturday.
There is a small chance for a pop-up, isolated shower behind the front, but those should be very minor, if they even develop at all.
Skies should be mostly clear to partly cloudy Saturday night, setting us up for plenty of sunshine through the day on Sunday. Highs on Sunday should be a bit warmer than Saturday, with middle 60s to low 70s expected.
A few showers are possible late Sunday night into early Monday morning, but those should also be relatively minor.
