Michigan’s weekend is going to be pretty good, just a few hours of showering

The weekend is just around the corner and the weather is not bad. There will be a patch of cloud with an occasional light rain shower.

The showers will have a hard time really getting us wet because the air is so dry on weekends. So the models I show for predicting rain don’t know how to represent rain in the air, which evaporates when it hits the ground.

In other words, when you see the forecast, cut your rain expectations in half.

Total precipitation 8 a.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday

If there are showers on Saturday, they are scattered and late in the day. The northern half of Lower Michigan would be in the shower area. Grand Rapids, Saginaw, Flint, Lansing, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor and Detroit should stay dry on Saturday.

Below you will find the total precipitation forecast for Saturday evening and Sunday.

Precipitation would be light and less than a tenth of an inch. The isolated showers will creep into much of Lower Michigan, with the exception of southeastern Lower Michigan.

Temperatures will be quite comfortable in the late morning, but early morning temperatures will still be cold.

However, I have a warning for you regarding temperatures. This is our “sea breeze” season. If you are near a shore of the Great Lake, a cold breeze from the water may develop in the afternoon. In a few minutes, temperatures could drop to 50 degrees. So take a heavy spring jacket with you when enjoying the great outdoors.

Apart from the sea breeze, the winds should stay below 16 km / h all weekend.

Unless you’re in a spotty shower, you should have partially sunny skies.

It’s a great weekend to prepare the yard for summer or to set up the dock.
