The clouds were thicker and the temperatures were a bit cooler Friday, but overall, it certainly wasn't a bad day. Highs for the day moved to "normal" levels and the winds weren't terribly strong. For Saturday, the winds will be blowing in off of Lake Huron, so our temperatures will drop back a bit more.
Aside from chillier temperatures, Saturday won't be too bad. It certainly will be the "Pick-Day" of the weekend. A few showers will be possible, but nothing overly heavy, nor widespread is expected. That will be changing for Saturday and Sunday as a rather extensive storm system moves toward us from the southwest.
Rain will overspread Mid-Michigan Saturday night. Once the rain moves in, expect at least a chance of rain to persist right on through Tuesday morning. Right now, it appears that some heavy downpours will be a good bet Saturday overnight, and for the first half of our Sunday. With periods of general rainfall continuing off & on through Monday, some flooding will be a possibility. More than two inches of rain will be likely in many areas, with the possibility of localized amounts in the three to four-inch range by Monday night. We will keep an eye on it! - JR
