Spring weather returns today

After a short interruption, spring resumes Thursday with highs returning to the 60s.  The wet, and sometimes cold, beginning of April looks to give way to more spring like temperatures to end out the month and little in the way of rain.  Looking seven days out model data is showing only two chances for rain with one being minor (.04”).

Thursday will see a mixture of sun and clouds throughout the day as an area of low pressure at the surface and a mid-level trough slides by to our north.  This will bring a chance for snow to the upper peninsula of Michigan through the day.  We will be on the warm side of all this and should see highs in the mid-60s due to clouds being around.  There is a weak cold front attached to the low and it will slide into the state overnight.  The front will be washing out as it heads into the state.  We will see increased cloud cover overnight tonight and into Friday, but our rain chance will be small.  You may see some sprinkles.

In concert with the arrival of the weekend we will see the arrival of warmer air starting on Friday night.  Seventies will be possible on Saturday and likely for Sunday.  The warm air will stick around throughout the work week.  Another weak front will push through Monday night into Tuesday morning.  This will bring a chance for upwards of an inch or so of rain Monday night into Tuesday morning.  Temperatures will not be impacted much in the front’s wake as highs will remain near 70 on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Enjoy your day!
