As much as we dislike, we sometimes feel winter in May, and today will be one of those days. Although we can start the day with partial sunlight, scattered snow will adorn the scenery this afternoon. Interestingly, today’s snowfall record is a trail, set in 1947, so that every piece we get officially at Metro Airport, even busy, will tie our daily snowfall record! This will be another windy day, with strong northern winds at 10 to 20 mph, and altitude struggling only to reach its lowest point until mid-40 (5 to 7 degrees Celsius).
Lakeshore Flood Advisory remains valid until 4:00 Saturday for our Lake Huron coastline area.
Today’s sunrise is at 6:19 a.m., and today’s sunset is at 8:41 p.m.
The snowfall gradually diminished until Friday night, with the sky partly cloudy after that. Temperature has fallen to record-breaking levels, coming out of the mid to upper 20s (-3 to -2 degrees Celsius). Detroit’s official low record on Saturday morning is 28 degrees (-2 degrees Celsius), set in 1983. The north winds become west at 8 to 13 mph.
Prolonged sub-freezing temperatures have prompted the National Weather Service to issue Freeze Alerts Friday night to all except Sanilac District until 9:00 Saturday night. Gentle vegetation will be killed tonight, unless covered or taken to a house or garage.
Saturday itself begins with sunlight, but clouds grow during the day and at least part of the afternoon will be cloudy before the sky is clear before nightfall. Highs near 50 degrees (10 degrees Celsius), and it will be a windy day.
Clouds rise Saturday night, with lows in the mid-30s (1 to 2 degrees Celsius).
As for Mother’s Day, computer models come to a somewhat better deal in scenarios where bathing will develop (sorry, ma’am). Height must rise slightly higher … to the mid 50s (13 degrees Celsius).
It may rain Sunday night, with low in the mid to 30s (3 degrees Celsius).
Every first shower Monday morning will end, with the sky becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Highs in the low 50s (11 degrees Celsius).
Partly sunny on Tuesday, with highs in the mid-50s (8 degrees Celsius).
Most sunny starts on Wednesday, before the clouds rise late in the afternoon. The highest rebounded to a low level of the 60s (16 degrees Celsius).
Rain is possible on Thursday, with the highest in the mid 60’s (18 degrees Celsius).
Bathing and thunderstorms may occur on Friday, with altitudes approaching 70 degrees (21 degrees Celsius).
Computer models disagree about next weekend, but it seems we are mostly sunny Saturday, and (hopefully) partly cloudy on Sunday. The second highest day is above 60s (20 degrees Celsius).
