Storms Bring Big Changes

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

After several days of shower and thunderstorm activity, we are finally poised for some long-awaited relief across the board in the weather department.

The remainder of Wednesday night will be dominated by the lingering effects of the slow-moving cold front. Skies will remain on the mostly cloudy side as the front continues it's sluggish eastward trek. The threat for any severe weather will fall by the wayside with the loss of daytime heating, but moisture will continue to surge into the region on a breezy southerly wind. This will lead to the development of numerous showers overnight, leading to occasional periods of rain for much of Mid-Michigan. A shift in the air mass will begin, however, as lows cool into the low 60s.

Thursday will be a day of sweeping changes, most notably in the feel of the air. The cold front will still be lingering close enough to our east to keep the clouds more dominant in the skies as breezy conditions persist. A few scattered showers will still be possible into the afternoon, but we will see a drastic drop in the humidity along with highs only reaching the mid 70s at best. It may even feel downright chilly compared to where we have been for the past week or so!

Lingering showers will come to an end by Thursday night, and skies will begin to clear more substantially in the wake of the departing storm system. About the only thing the won't change will be the breezy conditions as lows drop to the mid 50s, putting us near normal low temperatures for the first time in a while.

From there it should be all smiles as we wrap the work week up and head into the weekend. A region of high pressure will take over control of most of the eastern United States, keeping the skies largely on the clearer side. Temperatures Friday through Sunday should also remain quite comfortable, warming slightly from the upper 70s to the low 80s.
