First Warn 5

Witch of November slowly fades this evening

Posted: Updated:

Gusty winds that have controlled the weather story through the last couple of days, will finally die down as we progress further into this evening. As of early afternoon, we are still comfortably in the 25-35 mile per hour gust range.

In between our wind gusts, we're seeing scattered rain showers moving through the area as well. With our freezing level more than accessible, roughly 2000-3000 feet, a few flakes are mixing into those showers. As far as the roadways are concerned, we shouldn't expect any problems with the ground still fairly warm. Of course, cautious driving is always encouraged during rain and snow.

With wind, rain, and snow working together, with the company of cloud coverage, we're struggling in the temperature department this afternoon. As of 1 PM observations, 42 degrees in Owosso and Flint are as high as we've reached. It certainly seems reasonable that some locations, such as Houghton Lake, may not reach 40 today.

So when do we finally get a break from the Witch of November? That will slowly occur this evening. Winds will gradually fade as the hours pass, with the rain and snow showers following their lead. Clouds will also fade overnight, with sunshine returning during the day on Saturday.

With the addition of that sunshine, temperatures will have no trouble warming up from where we are today. However, we'll still be largely stuck in the 40s with a chilly night tonight. If that's not where you want to be as far as warmth, Sunday will bring further improvement, with temperatures rising back into the upper 50s.
