LANSING, Mich. — A cold front shifts slightly closer to mid-Michigan today, providing the chance for a few scattered showers and storms. It will not rain all day, but with a warm and very humid atmosphere and a cold front in the region, scattered showers/storms are possible through the day, although severe weather is NOT likely. The biggest threat with these storms will be the potential of heavy rainfall. The cold front pushes across the state on Monday bringing widespread showers and thunderstorms. A stray shower is possible early Tuesday morning before the system clears the area, with eventually dry conditions and less humidity for the afternoon. Temperatures this week will drop back closer to average, mainly in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
