LANSING, Mich. — Overnight rain develops for some areas. While most of this will be in the liquid form, there could be some wet snowflakes that mix in on the northern fringes of the precipitation shield. The heaviest of the rain will be near and south of I-94 where .50" of rain is possible. Amounts will rapidly trend downward as you go north. The wind will ramp up late tonight and become gusty by sunrise. Expect sustained winds in the 20-30 mph range Thursday with some gusts to 40 or 45. As this system pulls east on Thursday afternoon, drier weather will move in from north to south and the sky will rapidly clear, leading to cold temps Thursday night. Friday, high pressure will be solidifying itself across the region leading to an abundance of sunshine that continues into this upcoming weekend.
