WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
A bit warmer Wednesday and Thursday
Frost likely Sunday morning
TONIGHT Mostly cloudy skies continue this evening as showers slowly diminish. Lows will be in the mid-40s.
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY Wednesday looks partly sunny and pleasant with afternoon highs in the low 60s. Showers are likely Thursday night. Highs Thursday will also be in the low 60s.
FRIDAY Colder air arrives late in the week with daytime temperatures in the low-mid 50s on Friday. We’ll be cold enough to have some lake-effect rain showers, especially in the lakeshore counties. A cool northwest wind at 10-20 mph will make Friday feel chilly.
WEEKEND WEATHER The coolest air of the season will be here for the weekend. In fact, afternoon highs will likely be stuck in the upper 40s on Saturday (coolest day since last April). We will see considerable lake-effect clouds and a few lake-effect rain showers (probably still too warm for our first snowflakes – though a period of sleet isn’t impossible), but getting close as temperatures a mile above ground will likely dip a little below freezing. (We may have to make a mention of a possible waterspout on Lake Michigan). Sunday morning temperatures will likely be in the low-mid 30s with a chance of frost. Sunday afternoon will be dry with highs in the low-mid 50s.
LOOKING AHEAD Milder air appears to be on the horizon for early next week, with afternoon high temperatures expected to climb back into the 60s for the first half of next week.
