Mild temperatures with scattered rain in the forecast this week
Mon, 07 Apr 2014 01:54:36 GMT —
Northern Michigan has a lot of 40s and 50s in the forecast, but along with higher temps we're getting chances of rain throughout the week.
Overnight Sunday into Monday the northernmost counties have the best chance of seeing a passing shower, elsewhere we'll stay dry with increasing cloud cover. The clouds, and a southerly wind, will help the overnight lows stay a bit warmer than Saturday night - we only drop into the low 30s.
Monday we have two systems that will bring a more widespread chance for rain. We have a cold front that will move across Michigan and a low pressure system that will move up through the Ohio Valley later Monday. Showers will be hit and miss, but keep the umbrella handy. Monday high temps will be back up into the 40s and low 50s.
Although you may see a few flurries fall early Tuesday, we'll dry out during the day and see our cloud cover go down - and we'll keep partly cloudy skies through Wednesday.
Afternoon highs Wednesday and Thursday will be in the low 50s for most of us as our next system moves in. We'll get the warm front first later Wednesday with the cold front following - moving across the state Thursday. This will give us our next rain chances Wednesday night, Thursday, and Thursday night, and drop high temps back into the 40s Friday.
Good news for those wanting the warmer weather - Saturday looks to be relatively cloudy, but highs will range from the mid 40s in the E. U.P. to the low 60s in the Central Lower. Spring is trying to make an appearance!
