Damp weather Friday gives way to a beautiful weekend

Courtesy: Mike Buchanan/Leland Some rain Friday will end just in time for the upcoming weekend with a nice stretch of weather on tap beginning Saturday lingering into the middle of next week.

Low pressure will slide east of the area later Friday allowing skies to start to clear out just in time for the weekend setting up an extended stretch of dry weather into next week.

We will continue to deal with showers and the occasional rumble of thunder Friday as low pressure swirls across the Straits of Mackinac eventually into Ontario. Expect a good deal of cloudiness with passing showers at times. Most areas will see a tenth or two tenths of an inch of rain or less with a little more near the Canadian border and parts of northeast Lower Michigan. A northwest wind will keep it a little cooler with high temperatures ranging from 65-75F.

A few light showers or sprinkles will hang on through Friday night with cloudy skies. Low temperatures from 53-59F.

Looking at the weekend, skies will start off cloudy Saturday morning but the sun will break through in the afternoon with lots of late day sunshine. Expect the same Sunday with abundant sunshine. Temperatures Saturday in the low/mid-70's and Sunday expect mid/upper-70's.

High pressure will flex in early next week leading to dry weather Monday through Wednesday at least with that perhaps hanging around into Thursday. Temperatures will start off in the 70's Monday into Tuesday warming into the low/mid-80's by next Wednesday. A frontal boundary will arrive later in the week but there are signs that may not cross through until at least later Thursday perhaps into next Friday before we see the next chance for any rain.
