Showers and a few flakes are moving across Mid-Michigan early this morning and after a few dry days with temperatures in the 50s, we're cooling down today. Does this trend hold into the weekend? We have your forecast below!

Today & Friday

Most of the precipitation that falls throughout the next couple of days will reside on the west side of the state, closer to Lake Michigan. But we will keep a small chance of a shower in your forecast tomorrow and Friday as some of those showers could venture far enough into Mid-Michigan.

The best chances are in areas near US-127 and our northwestern communities. During the daylight hours, rain should be the main precipitation type as temperatures today and Friday will be well above freezing. But a few flakes may mix in during the late night and early morning hours.

Winds over the next few days will be out of the westerly direction, around 10 to 20 miles per hour.

Weekend Outlook

With the final few weekends before Christmas ahead, we know all of these weekends are important as you prepare. This weekend if you're looking for a window to head out and about, Saturday will be a mainly dry day. A few showers may linger in the lake-effect areas, but that should be winding down.

Skies will be mostly cloudy on Saturday with a temperature right around 40 degrees.

Sunday will be cloudy as well, but brings a better chance of precipitation, especially during the second half of the day. As it stands right now, it appears the morning hours of Sunday should be dry, with rain and snow not arriving until the second half of the day.

High temperatures on Sunday will be near or slightly cooler than Saturday, around the upper 30s and lower 40s.
