With gray skies holding for the day, temperatures Tuesday didn’t move very much from morning to afternoon. As rather strong south to southwesterly winds hold overnight, temperatures will continue to slowly rise across Mid-Michigan, right on through the wee hours of our Wednesday. An approaching cold front will also support a few more flakes of snow and/or a few drops of rain.
We should get back into a little bit of sunshine Wednesday as the cold front moves off to our east. Strong winds will shift in from the northwest, opening the door for our next batch of cold air. The strong cold winds blowing in across Lake Michigan is sure to stir up some flurries for our side of the state. That wind will also cause our temperatures to take quite a tumble through the day. Readings in the mid 30s early in the morning, will drop into the teens by evening time. Windchill readings will be in the single digits.
We should see a decent amount of sunshine Thursday and Friday, but it won’t help very much. Highs Thursday will be in the teens, while lows Thursday night flirt with the 0-degree mark in some areas. Friday will be brighter, but temperatures will have to fight hard to get past 20. A mid-winter setting will continue through the weekend too. There will be a chance of some snow showers late Saturday as yet another cold front sweeps across the state. On ABC12 News we will let you know what that means for next week's temperatures. - JR
