WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Showers/Storms Likely Today
Cooler, Less Humid Friday, Chance Light Shower
Dry for Most of the Weekend/Sunshine Sunday
TODAY Mostly cloudy with showers and t-storms likely. A breezy southwest wind will keep it warm and humid with highs in the low 80s. There’s a small chance that an isolated storm or two could become severe this afternoon especially near Lansing and Battle creek to the east.
TONIGHT A cold moves through tonight and that will usher in a new air mass. Any showers tonight will be light. Lows will bottom out in the 60s.
FRIDAY Extensive cloud cover may hold on through the first half of Friday with gradual clearing later in the day. It will be cooler and a little less humid with a brisk westerly breeze wind. Highs will peak in the mid 70s (low 70s at Lake Michigan).
WEEKEND WEATHER There will be a fair amount of clouds Friday morning. Look for afternoon highs in the upper 70s to near 80. Sunday will be dry with sunshine and highs in the low mid 80s.
ECLIPSE DAY The 5th day of the 8-day forecast is Eclipse Day. As of now it appears dry with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
LOOKING AHEAD Showers and storms are possible Tuesday, with a return to dry and pleasant weather for much of next week!
