WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Scattered Showers This Morning and Later Today
Partly Sunny and Cool on Sunday Lots of Sunshine from Sunday PM through at least Wednesday
EARLY MORNING Scattered showers and a chance of a thunderstorm this morning. Any showers that pass by could contain some brief heavy rain. It’ll be mild and muggy with temperatures hanging up in the low-mid 60s. Winds will be south-southwest at 5-15 mph.
WEEKEND WEATHER Sharply cooler air settles in for the weekend, with afternoon highs only in the low 60s for both today and Sunday. Highs today will likely be in the early morning, with temperatures falling to the mid-upper 50s by evening. Showers are likely on Saturday and the wind will kick up from the north at 10-20 mph in the midday-afternoon. Unfortunately, it appears as though the rain may linger through much the day Saturday, with clearing sky conditions from north to south across the area later Saturday night into early Sunday for those areas south of I-94. Sunday will become partly sunny, a little breezy, cool and dry. Winds will hold up overnight Saturday night and Sunday night, so frost is not likely, though early morning temperatures will be in the low-mid 40s (upper 30s north of Kent County). Winds Sunday will be northeast at 10-20 mph.
LOOKING AHEAD We should stay dry with a good bit of sunshine and a gradual warming trend for Monday through Wednesday (probably Thursday, too). Temperatures should warm to 70 on Monday and the mid 70s on Tuesday. We should reach the upper 70s Wednesday and low 80s for next Thursday. Winds will be a little lighter from Monday – Thursday than over the weekend and the wind will slowly shift from NE to SSE during the early-mid part of next week. I have about a 30-40% chance of a shower next Friday and Saturday as the next cool front arrives.
Check out Bill’s Blog. Bill has the latest Great Lakes water levels and news (20 foot fish used to live in the Great Lakes, yikes!). He’s also got the link to the video of the big volcanic explosion that occurred last night around 9 pm EDT in southern Japan (ash cloud to 37,000 feet!). A long-range note…as of right now, I’m looking at drier than average weather for the first half of June with near average temperatures. We may not reach 90 during the first half of June.
