JR’s Thursday Evening Weather Report
With partly cloudy conditions early Thursday morning, the partial solar eclipse proved to be quite a sight across Mid-Michigan. After that, we had another very warm, sticky kind of day with a few showers and thundershowers during the afternoon. That activity will fade away quickly during the evening, leaving us with partly cloudy to fair skies overnight. Lows will range from the upper 50s to middle 60s. Our “normal” low is now 55-degrees.
A few more showers and thundershowers will develop Friday. Right now it looks like the northern parts of the ABC12 viewing area will have the best chance of seeing some rain. With a cool front slated to drift across the state Saturday, all of us will have another chance of seeing some thundershowers, but no day-long rains. We need every drop of rain we can get at this point. The U.S. Drought Monitor is showing extreme drought conditions now across central lower Michigan.
Some lingering clouds Sunday morning will move out of the area for the afternoon. More clouds will return for Monday, with a few sprinkles or brief showers a possibility as well. After that, it looks like much of the rest of the week will be dry. On ABC12 News we will be talking about some cooler, more comfortable air that is headed in our direction. - JR
