LANSING, Mich. — The first half of the coming weekend will be far better than the second.
That's because Saturday features sunshine and near-normal temperatures, whereas Sunday brings damp, rainy and windy conditions.
While the falling temps on Sunday will be noticeable, the most significant part of our forecast will be the powerful winds Saturday night and Sunday.
In fact, I would be surprised if some kind of wind advisory or warning is not issued sometime Saturday ahead of the developing conditions.
We expect sustained winds past about 10:00PM Saturday night and through the day Sunday to be between 25-35mph, with frequent gusts over 40mph and occasional gusts over 50mph.
Isolated power outages may become a concern during this time, so it would be a great idea to make sure devices and other necessities are charged and ready before Saturday night.
Even with a chilly morning start on Saturday, sunshine and a steady southern breeze will drive us into the middle and upper 40s by late afternoon.
Clouds start to increase closer towards sunset, and some spotty showers just after dark could precede a more persistent rain overnight that lasts into the first half of Sunday.
Next week appears much drier as chilly temps to begin the week eventually find their way back into the 50s by week's end, and next weekend already promises to be much better weather-wise.
With Opening Day on Sunday, and windy weather in the forecast, it may not be the best day to head out--that said, if you do, try to avoid the higher placed stands and blinds!
