First day of fall feels like summer

SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

While fall has arrived in Mid-Michigan, temperatures in some areas certainly aren't feeling like it. Through the lunch hour today, Flint and other areas near I-69 have already reached into the 80s. While not widespread, we have a few light showers out there as well.

Do we dry out in time for the weekend? Your forecast is below!

Today & Tonight

We have a few scattered light showers moving through northern areas of Mid-Michigan today, but most of the area is dry.

Rain will likely reside north of the Saginaw Bay through the day today, with only isolated activity expected elsewhere. Partly to mostly cloudy skies can be expected throughout today. Highs should rise into the upper 70s and lower 80s, with middle 80s southward.

The evening hours should be dry outside of a few showers north of the Saginaw Bay, but the chance will creep back into the picture during late evening and overnight as the front drops farther south. Overnight lows should settle into the lower 60s tonight.

Friday

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible Friday as the front makes its final push through the area, but no severe weather is expected. Rainfall amounts will be rather unimpressive with this passage, with .10" to .25" expected. Some may not see any rain at all.

Skies will be fairly cloudy through Friday and high temperatures will be much cooler in the upper 60s. We should be dry by the time Friday Night Football rolls around and for any other evening plans you may have. Grab a jacket with those chilly temperatures!

Weekend

With the front sliding south of the area, we should remain mostly dry for the weekend. There is an outside shot at an isolated shower or sprinkle, but widespread rain isn't in the forecast.

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy through Saturday and Sunday, with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s both days.
