SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - It was a frosty start but temperatures have been warming up quick! A more recent development in the forecast is our northern row of counties possibly falling into the upper 30s tonight. While frost -- and a frost advisory -- are possible, the chance is much lower. Essentially, outside of our M-55 counties, we aren’t expecting frost at least through our 7-Day Forecast. There’s also a very likely chance that we’re done with frost for the spring after today.


Any travel you have planned for this afternoon will be in good shape weather-wise, though you’ll likely run into the traffic rush of the weekend as you head out this afternoon. These nice travelling conditions will hold for the rest of today as sunshine will continue. Temperatures this afternoon will be warmer than Wednesday and Thursday, eventually up to 70-71 degrees. The Thumb and folks near the shoreline will be a handful of degrees cooler, but certainly warmer than the last couple of days as well. The wind will be northeasterly with a speed of 5 to 10 mph.

Friday will be warmer!

Clear skies hold through the overnight with lows falling mostly to 42 degrees. As mentioned above, our northern counties may dip into the upper 30s so frost is a possibility there, but it’s not a guarantee. The chance is definitely not as good as the last couple of nights. We’ll have a calm wind, so all-in-all it’ll be a very quiet night!

Weekend Outlook

There will be some high clouds from time-to-time over the weekend but it won’t subtract from any bright conditions across our area. Highs will reach up to 76 degrees on Saturday, then 78 degrees on Sunday, before 82 degrees on Monday. Lows will land around 48 degrees on Saturday night, then 50 degrees on Sunday night. Through the entire weekend, wind speeds stay around 5 to 10 mph with a northeast direction. Any services you’re attending, or if you plan on heading to the Alma Highland Fest or Frankenmuth for the Dog Bowl and Balloons Over Bavarian Inn, it’ll be a great weekend for it! We wish you a wonderful, fun-filled, and safe Memorial Day Weekend!

Memorial Day Weekend is in great shape!
