Tuesday was a pretty nice late-autumn day across Mid-Michigan. Many of us saw temperatures in the morning dip into the teens for the first time this season. Bright sunshine and light winds helped readings recover pretty well during the afternoon. Partly cloudy skies are expected overnight as light southerly winds prevail. That southerly wind will hold temperatures pretty steady, so by morning readings will surround the freezing mark.
The best shot at seeing sunshine Wednesday will come in the morning. The trend for the day will be for the clouds to increase, so by day’s end, we will have a pretty solid deck of clouds. Some of the thicker clouds Wednesday evening may even spit out a few sprinkles or flurries. We will have a better chance of some showers Wednesday overnight, on into Thanksgiving Day. Highs Thursday should manage to move into the middle 40s.
By Thursday night, a cold front will be moving eastward, out of Mid-Michigan. As another shot of much colder air moves in, any lingering rain showers will change over to snow showers. Strong northwesterly winds Friday will get the lake-effect revved up again, so some scattered snow showers or flurries will be possible Friday as high temperatures fight to move to around the freezing mark. On ABC12 News we will let you know how long the colder air will hang around into the weekend. - JR
