Evening & Tonight
Cloud coverage will be increasing through the evening, and we’re back to partly and mostly cloudy skies overnight. Conditions are expected to stay dry most of, if not all of, the night. There’s just a small chance of a few showers starting in our western row of counties past midnight.
Lows will also be a touch warmer tonight, settling to around the mid 40s in the Tri-Cities and Flint. Numbers will fall closer to 40 in our northern tier.
The wind will be light around 5 mph from the south southeast.
Much like the last few weekends, rain chances are better on Sunday.
Saturday also sees the chance for a few showers, but there should be more dry time overall. It will stay mostly cloudy through Saturday, though, so even if it’s not raining, it will be cloudy.
Highs reach the low 60s but hold in the upper 50s up north, and the wind will be from the south at 5-10 mph.
As the low swirls through the Great Lakes on Sunday, showers should pick up more in frequency and coverage. While it also won’t be a washout or rain all day, do expect to see showers more frequently on Sunday compared to Saturday. Sunday could also include a few rumbles of thunder.
If you have outdoor plans this weekend, Saturday will definitely be the better day for them. You can keep an eye on the rain this weekend with our Interactive Radar!
Highs Sunday should manage the mid 60s with readings only a few degrees cooler in our northern tier.
They could be a few tweaks to rain totals over the weekend, but current trends have around 0.10″ to 0.30″.
There isn’t as much moisture in the atmosphere this time around, so totals aren’t expected to be very high. Totals below are through 10 PM Sunday.
More scattered showers should continue into the start of next workweek that will add to totals received from over the weekend.
See how long they stick around in your full 7-Day Forecast, and have a wonderful weekend!
