LANSING, Mich. — Temperatures are headed in a warmer direction, but only for the remainder of this week.
By Saturday and beyond, any semblance of the milder airmass that carried us into Friday will be long gone.
The showers tonight will be accompanied by a slow rise in temperatures--towards the middle 50s by morning. For some, especially north, this could be the warmest we'll be all day.
After a steadier round of rain rolls through Thursday morning, we'll watch skies begin to clear in the afternoon. In the places where clearing occurs quickly, temps could reach as high as 70.
For folks who hold onto the clouds Thursday, highs may only reach the lower 60s, but mild conditions overnight will allow everyone to approach 70 on Friday.
In addition to Friday's warmth, thunderstorms are expected to pop-up, mainly in the afternoon. No severe weather is expected, but some of these storms could contain gusty winds around 45mph as they pass.
The temperature drop-off this weekend will be... Steep. Temps are expected to fall shy of 50 with a very chilly north breeze; this will be a difference of 20-25 degrees between Friday's and Saturday's highs.
Our long range temperature trend keeps us cooler than normal through next week, too, with highs only near 50 and a couple chances for showers.
