Clouds finally exit, chilly overnight lows follow

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

After sticking around for the afternoon and early evening hours, those stubborn clouds have finally made a more noticeable departure from Mid-Michigan. A few locations in the eastern portions of the thumb will take a little bit more time, but the progress is certainly there.

Thanks to the rapid decrease in cloud cover and the downward trend in temperature, overnight lows will drop off quite dramatically through the morning hours tomorrow. Upper 40s and low 50s will be the likely landing spot for tonight, with the cooler temperatures actually occurring in areas that are farther inland. The lingering moisture near the lakeshore will actually prevent lows in these areas from diving further.

With the chilly temperatures to start your Wednesday, temperatures will be held below seasonal averages. However, we'll at least have enough warming to reach the the middle 70s. Clouds will build in the afternoon, but won't amount to anything beyond our typical summer fair-weather cumulus clouds.

Thursday looks to carry a morning rain chance for areas in the I-69 corridor and southward, but its a situation that largely depends on the track of a low pressure system to our west. The picture on those rain chances will be much clearer by tomorrow. By later in the day on Thursday, Mid-Michigan should be all dry once again.

Friday looks to be a fantastic finish to your workweek. Skies will be filled with blue sky and sunshine and temperatures will climb back to the 80s. If you have a chance to do anything outside on Friday, take advantage. It appears that this weekend will be the start of another unsettled stretch of weather with rain chances through the early parts of next week.
