Although it may not be like this for too long, it looks like we'll actually see some warm temperatures this weekend. And when I say warm, I'm talking summer-like temperatures.
This is a huge departure from what we've seen so far this April, especially considering we just saw snow yesterday (Tuesday, April 19th). I mean, come on. Snow in April? This is just one of the many reasons why I think spring is Michigan's worst season. But I digress...
As I said, these summer-like temps aren't sticking around for too long, but they will be here throughout the weekend.
Lansing Weekend Forecast
Before we see these unusually warm temps this weekend, WILX says we'll be in for some rain showers on Thursday and Friday. Very par for the course when you just remember the phrase, "April showers bring May flowers", you know, that old chestnut. But those days won't get too cold; we're looking at high temps in the low 60s for both of those days.
This weekend looks like it's going to be dryer in addition to being warmer.
The Weather Channel predicts that we'll see high temperatures in the upper 70s for both days. And while there is a small chance of rain for the weekend, right now it seems like it might hold off.
Lansing Extended Forecast
As far as warm weather goes, that's about it for now, because as soon as this weekend is over, we're back to more average April weather. The temperatures for the next week look to be hovering in the 50s. Not too much rain in the forecast, either, with only Monday and Sunday of next week expecting rain. However, we can't forget that this is Michigan weather we're talking about, so things can change on a dime. But at least we can look forward to a little bit of a reprieve this weekend.
