Heat Wave

Near record warmth spreads through the region. This is due to a Low pressure area in the upper Midwest. It’s counter clockwise rotation sweeping  warm air from the south. Temps are still rising currently as they are expected to top out at around 61. I enjoyed looking up to see some nice wispy cirrus clouds thriving in the upper atmosphere where they condense at.

Most active weather in the forecast resides in tonight. Tonight rain moves in as a Cold front will end our warm trend. A few rumbles of thunder are also possible if convection is strong enough. Rain should continue through Wednesday and into the night. A few flurries may also mix in as the front passes through. Low should drop down to 33, so it will hover right around freezing.

Thursday tries to make it to 40, but clouds wil limit  much of the heat energy from making it to the surface. This pattern should hold through the weekend with highs in the mid 30s. There could be some snow moving in however. The latest GFS run hints at a Low passing to the south where we would be on the cool snowy side.

In the long run, more warm systems move through bringing more rain. Don’t count winter out yet, because it is Michigan…
