WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Temps falling Friday
Rain likely for Friday morning
Dry for Saturday and Sunday
LATE THANKSGIVING NIGHT INTO BLACK FRIDAY Rain returns for all areas overnight and lasts into Friday morning making for wet Black Friday shopping. The rain should taper off Friday afternoon and evening from north to south. Temperatures will fall on Friday from the mid 40s early to the mid 30s by mid-evening. We’ll dip below freezing Friday night, so any puddles from the rain will freeze up and may produce an icy spot.
WEEKEND PREVIEW Skies will be partly sunny on Saturday and Sunday with dry conditions across Lower Michigan (showers are possible down in Indiana and Ohio). Highs will be in the low 40s with lows in the mid 20s.
LOOKING AHEAD Rain is likely in the area late Monday night into Tuesday. Tuesday will be breezy. We should see the rain showers on Tuesday to a light mix during the afternoon and evening, but we won’t see any significant accumulation. Look for temperatures in the low 40s Monday and Tuesday. Flurries and temperatures in the upper 30s on Wednesday, then partly sunny next Thursday. We don’t see any really cold air (for this time of year) coming here next week.
