It was certainly nice to see some sun shining down on Mid-Michigan in the wake of Tuesday evening's storms. Our springtime storms gave way to springtime temperatures, with most of the ABC12 viewing area seeing readings moving easily through the 60s Wednesday afternoon. I hope you enjoyed the lovely day, because quick, and major changes are in the offing.
A cold front supporting light rain and rain showers will be moving off to our east by Thursday morning. Early morning temperatures will range from the mid-to-upper 30s. With a stiff west-northwesterly wind prevailing for the day, highest readings for the afternoon will struggle back into the low-to-mid 40s. To add a little insult to injury, the strong, chilly winds will also continue to stir-up spotty showers. Not only that, but don't be surprised if you happen to see a few flakes of snow mix in with the raindrops.
Friday will be be another chilly, blustery day. Overall it will be brighter than Thursday, but high temperatures for the day will be a good ten degrees or so below the average. Temperatures should move back into the 50s on Saturday with partly sunny skies holding for the day. Unfortunately, more clouds and some showers will make a return for Easter Sunday. Highs Sunday should sneak back into the 50s even with the rain, but another batch of chillier air will follow for next week. - JR
