LANSING, Mich. — Our warm pattern will strengthen over the next few days with highs likely reaching the mid/upper 70s today and Wednesday. In fact, we may see our first 80 degree temperature this season. Most areas will remain rain-free, but a stray shower or storm is still possible in the warm air. The better chance for wet weather and appreciable rainfall arrives Thursday and Friday as the main low pressure system approaches from the west. The heightened precipitation prospects and associated increase in cloud cover along with the progression of this system across the Midwest will work to knock temperatures down into the 60s heading into our weekend.

TODAY: Partly cloudy to partly sunny with an isolated shower or thunderstorm possible. Highs in the mid/upper 70s. South/southwest winds at 5 to 15 mph. Occasional gusts of 25 mph.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. South winds 5 to 10 mph. Lows in the middle 50s. Winds south at 5 to 10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy to partly sunny with an isolated shower or thunderstorm possible late. Highs in the middle/upper 70s. Records could be challenged as some locations may see their first 80 this season. Winds south-southeast at 7 to 14 mph.

THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. Not as warm with highs in the upper 60s.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with a few showers possible and maybe a rumble of thunder. Highs in the lower 60s.
