First Warn 5

Showers and storms roll in, temps stay mild

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

After a fantastic Saturday, the rain showers have started to roll into Mid-Michigan. They'll remain in the forecast for this evening and into the overnight hours, as well as linger into your Memorial Day. There is some good news, however. Thanks to their earlier arrival this afternoon, Memorial Day looks a little bit better.

Overnight and into the early morning hours, a few locations could see some heavier showers so take it slow if traveling early tomorrow morning. Once an approaching warm front passes through from the south during the afternoon, we should see a break in the rain and thunderstorm activity during the afternoon and evening hours. This bodes well for those who are returning from their destinations a little bit later on in the day and for any ceremonies that may be taking place.

As far as the impact that this warm front will have on our temperatures, it will be minimal. We'll just maintain the upper 70s and lower 80s that we've seen Saturday and today. A few breaks in the clouds are entirely possible once those showers and thunderstorms have come to an end, but those breaks will be short-lived. Rain and thunderstorms will arrive again on Tuesday as you head back to work and the kids head back to school.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will linger for the rest of your workweek along with some humidity. Dew points will approach the lower 60s during the first half of the week before letting up on Thursday. Temperatures will remain in the upper 70s and low 80s through Thursday, but the lack of humidity will be noticeable compared to earlier in the week.

Thursday is also looking dry as an area of high pressure will make an attempt to move into the region. Once our last round moves out on Friday, next weekend is looking dry and a bit more comfortable. Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday will fall back into a more seasonal pattern in the upper 60s and low 70s.
