Getting Milder for Spring's Arrival

SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Thursday marked the last full day of winter, and it tried to get in its last digs across Mid-Michigan. Thanks to a southeasterly wind, plenty of chilly air spilled inland from Lake Huron, making it a struggle for most locations to even reach 40 degrees.

Spring makes its long-awaited arrival at 6:45 on Friday evening, and our weather will be feeling the part. Clouds will again hold the majority of the skies, but some sun should work in at times as highs push their way into the low 50s for most of the region. Even areas closer to the lake shore should see highs at least hit the upper 40s as southwesterly winds take over.

Early Saturday morning, a cold frontal boundary will begin a push southeastward out of central Canada and into the Great Lakes. This will bring a round of showers along with it as it dives through the region. A few snowflakes may mix in at times, as chillier air works in behind the front, but most of this activity should come to a close by midday. Partial clearing should occur in the afternoon, as temperatures fall a bit from early highs in the mid 40s.

Sunshine and clouds will be the theme on Sunday and Monday, but we will experience a brief stretch of below-average temperatures with highs only reaching the middle 30s both days.

By Tuesday, temperatures will stabilize back into the 40s before a new system arrives with a bit of rain on Wednesday.
