SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - The heavier rain held off just long enough Monday evening to allow for area fireworks shows to go on a good note! Rain and storms eventually started picking up overnight and have brought damp roadways to the area this morning. Through the afternoon, dry weather holds. With residual moisture around behind this morning’s rain, humidity levels will be a little higher than they were Monday.

Afternoon

A weak cold front has been passing through, but it won’t cool down temperatures much as the region still makes its way into the 80s. The Tri-Cities will check in around 85 to 86 degrees, Flint will be closer to 87, and our northern counties and the Thumb will land around 81 to 83 degrees. Today’s wind will be comparable in speed to Monday, between 5 and 15 mph with gusts to 20 mph, but the direction today will turn west northwesterly. Skies will also see decreasing clouds the rest of the afternoon.
