It took a while, but some sun finally broke through the clouds Monday. Even so, temperatures stayed in the 40s for much of day. Our "normal" high temperature is now 60-degrees. Temperatures will continue to run a good bit below average right on through the week as the chilly air continues to flood into the state from the northwest.
Frost / Freeze conditions will be possible early Tuesday morning with a good bit of fair sky expected to begin the day. With a strong southwest to westerly wind prevailing, temperatures will recover pretty well. Highs should manage to move back into the 50s as clouds increase during the afternoon.
High temperatures Wednesday will retreat into the 40s as brisk winds shift in from the west-northwest. We will see quite a bit of cloud-cover for the day, and a few sprinkles and flakes of snow will be possible too. Skies will clear for Wednesday night, setting the stage for a hard freeze across Mid-Michigan early Thursday morning. - JR
