Warmer With More Sunshine

Posted at 5:43 AM, Dec 09, 2020

LANSING, Mich. — Warmer air builds into the region today and our high temperatures will be roughly ten degrees above average through the end of the work week. Today will start off with mostly cloudy skies, but decreasing cloud cover will lead to some sunshine by midday. Plan for highs in the mid 40s this afternoon with skies becoming mostly sunny. A few more clouds tonight turning partly cloudy with lows in the upper 20s.

We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine on Thursday with highs in the mid to upper 40s. Clouds move back in on Friday as a low pressure system approaches the Great Lakes region. Rain chances should hold off until Friday night, so the daytime hours of Friday will just bring increasing cloud cover with highs in the mid 40s.

This weekend’s storm system will be something to watch over the next few days. At this time, it looks like Mid-Michigan will be on the warmer side of the system, meaning this would mainly be a rain event for our area. Rain will move in Friday night and continue through the day Saturday. There is still some uncertainty for Saturday on how soon we see rain changing over to snow, but latest model trends keep most of the accumulating snowfall just north and west of Mid-Michigan. Most of the precipitation will come to an end Saturday night or early Sunday. As colder air moves in on Sunday, scattered snow showers will be possible with highs in the low to mid 30s.

A quiet weather pattern returns for the start of next work week. Monday and Tuesday look calm with partly to mostly cloudy skies and seasonable temperatures in the mid 30s.
