After a nearly perfect weather day across mid-Michigan Tuesday, some rain is now making a move toward the area. A cool front out in the high and central plains will be gradually working its way toward us, so the chances of rain will be increasing during the next couple of days.
Wednesday will begin with some bright sunshine. The trend, however, will be for the clouds to quickly roll in through midday. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will move in from the west during the course of the afternoon. The front itself will move across the area on Thursday. This means that we will continue to carry a chance of some showers and thundershowers through Thursday night, but Thursday will not be a total washout.
As the front moves off to the east, the trend will be for our skies to brighten-up for Friday afternoon as cooler, drier air settles in. This will set the stage for a nearly perfect setting for Saturday's Crim Festival of Races in downtown Flint.! - JR
