Temperatures on the rise

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Sick and tired of the cold? A slight warm up is in store for the Mitten, but it won't last long.

Temperatures still on the cold side this afternoon in the 20s, but warm air will fill in throughout today and by this evening we will be at or just a few degrees above freezing. A welcome break from high temperatures in the teens and wind chills below zero. 

Those "warmer" temperatures are thanks to a warm front which will slowly makes its way across the Great Lakes this evening pulling in warmer air. Highs today will climb into the low 30s, which is seasonable for this time of the year and about 10 degrees warmer than highs yesterday. .

Winds will also die down today becoming light which will help with wind chills. Scattered snow likely during the second half of your day closer towards this evening.

Heading into tonight temperatures will actually become warmer, as a result any snow showers will transition to freezing rain and eventually change over to all rain Friday morning as the warm front moves through. Friday will be another mild day with temperatures in the upper 30s and a few lucky spots reaching the 40 degree mark. The warmer air does come with rain though. 

Keep tabs on the snow and rising temperatures from the First Warn 5 Weather Center!

Rain showers will continue during the day Friday and we could see a short period of heavy rain late Friday morning into the afternoon. Many locations will see a tenth to a quarter of an inch or rain.  Even with the rain we need to enjoy the warmer temperatures while they are here because they don’t last long.

A cold front arrives Friday night and rain will transition back over to snow overnight as cold air moves back in.

Arctic air will settle over Michigan once again as we approach the weekend. We are back into the teens and 20s with scattered lake effect snow showers possible Saturday thru Monday.
