Tuesday was one for the books, with record rainfall amounts, and with high temperatures near record levels. Pockets of rain will finally move out of Mid-Michigan by around midday Wednesday. But even as the rain comes to an end, flooding will remain a concern through the day as the runoff continues.
Wednesday will begin with lingering showers, but as a cold front moves off to our east, the showers will be swept out of lower Michigan, and our winds will shift in from the north. So for our Wednesday afternoon, we should see some sunshine, but our temperatures will hover in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Total rainfall across most of the ABC12 viewing area from our current storm system will probably be in the 1.5" to 2.5" range as the pattern finally moves out of the area.
Thursday will give us a chance to dry out a bit, but high temperatures will range from the upper 30s, to around 40. More rain is in the offing for Friday. While any rain will not be welcome, the pattern should be generally light. Another batch of showers are a good bet for Saturday night & early Sunday as well. Again, the pattern will be pretty light, but there is a chance that it could turn out to be a rain/snow mix. - JR
