Moisture will be impacting nearly the entire state over the weekend, according to Ryan Martin, Michigan Ag Today’s chief meteorologist.
“We’ve got the remains of a big winter storm that’s tracking across the Great Lakes region, so moisture n Friday will be anywhere from ¼ to ¾ of an inch with coverage around 100 percent of the state,” he said. “We do see frost and freeze conditions that come in Saturday morning. If your growing season hasn’t ended already, it’s pretty much done at this point forward.”
Once we get through the weekend, it looks like smooth sailing headed into next week.
“We’re dry, generally speaking in mot areas for the rest of the weekend and Monday, Tuesday of next week,” he said. “We have to keep an eye out for ¼ to ½ inch of rain scattered across 80 percent of Michigan.”
As for the second half of the week, expect some a dip in temperatures.
“Temperatures will be below normal for several days, but we really don’t have a lot of major weather coming at us during that period,” said Martin. “The next front we have to watch for the region will develop the 19th into the 20th.”
