The rest of today will be a little chilly with a cool breeze out of the northeast keeping areas near the big lake quite chilly, mainly in the 30s to near 40, while the rest of the area should make the mid 40s & possibly a bit higher south of the Thruway. Clouds will also increase this afternoon & should lead to a little rain later this evening & overnight thanks to a fast moving low tracking to the south later tonight.
The next system coming together across the Upper Midwest will hook to the west of us later Friday into Friday evening & usher in a milder air mass Friday afternoon & evening. Some pretty good rains & possibly a t-storm or two, along with gusty southerly winds will build in during the midday and afternoon hours Friday too, as the milder air arrives. Highs later Friday afternoon will push well up into the 50s, but a cold front will quickly make it's way across the region late Friday night/early Saturday & cool us off into the low 40s with a few scattered rain & snow showers Saturday. Wind chills Saturday will dip into the mid 20s to low 30s for much of the day, as winds will whip the colder air in out of the northwest, so if you are going to head out for the Red Wings home opener be sure to bundle up! No surprise there!
High pressure will build in & provide a good deal of sun to end the weekend with highs reaching the mid to upper 40s, & all in all shouldn't feel too bad Sunday afternoon with light winds.
Late Monday through Tuesday is a time frame the News 8 weather team has been watching very closely, as a storm will develop near the Gulf of Mexico & come north. At this point, though, it looks like the storm MAY take more of a westerly track & move just west of, or right over us & if this is the case most of the accumulating precipitation would fall in the form of rain. However, this could change significantly between now & when this storm is supposed to affect us, so definitely stay tuned for updates through the start of next week for the latest from us.
Have a great day Everyone!
