Good afternoon and evening! Spend some time with Chief Meteorologist Keith Thompson at 5 PM! Rain is steady this evening and perhaps into your Thursday morning commute. The responsible storm has moved southward from Lake Michigan and now resides in Indiana. This means the bulk of the rain will be south of I-96, concentrated from I-94 and farther south into northern Indiana. Thursday rainfall totals look like up to 3/4", highs are in the middle 60s.
Because our storm of concern is cutoff from the jet stream, it moves of its own volition. The movement Friday is farther north toward the Great Lakes once more. The result is areas of rain are on the increase Friday and Friday afternoon. Northeast winds on the north side of the storm, rotating counterclockwise, will blow at 20-25 mph and make middle 60s feel even cooler. One of the primary American models advocates as much as 3/4" of rain Friday.
If we weren't already lucky, our storm of concern rotates toward Cleveland Saturday mandating more rain in the lower Peninsula, some of the rain could be heavy. Our broken record like forecast finally varies to allow for only some leftover showers Sunday and the prospect of a little sun. Completely dry weather is slated for Monday through Wednesday of next week. At that point, there could be a hurricane near the southeast coast and snow in the northern Rockies. Wow!
