Thursday was a dandy across Mid-Michigan with light breezes, and plenty of sunshine for the entire day. With that combination, temperatures topped-out right about where they should for this part of April.
Lots of cloud cover will be the rule for the next couple of days as a couple of cool fronts move across the region. We may see peeks of sunshine now and then, but we will also see some spotty, generally light, showers. The first front will move across the area early Friday. The second one will follow about 24 hours later. Aside from the spotty showers, we can also expect temperatures to hold at below-average levels right through the weekend.
Brighter skies will return to the area on Sunday. Mostly Sunny skies are on tap for Monday, while the clouds will start to thicken-up a bit Tuesday afternoon. With the sun shining early next week, winds will turn to the southwest. This should result in quick, and significant, warming. Highs will approach the 70-degree mark Monday. Readings should top 70-degrees for Tuesday and Wednesday. - JR
