No Precipitation Concerns Continue This Week, Possibility Grows for Saturday

The high pressure system that’s been sitting over the state should shift to the south and east on Wednesday, but dry weather will stick around for the rest of the week.

“We’ll see moisture starting to get close to Michigan late Friday afternoon, Friday evening,” said Ryan Martin, chief meteorologist with Michigan Ag Today. “[We] could have to allow a few pop up showers or thunderstorms into Western Michigan as we head towards sunset Saturday night.”

Martin added the best moisture chances will be tracking across the rest of the state overnight Saturday through Sunday morning.

“You got to allow for a quarter to one inch of rain—coverage around 90% of Michigan,” he said. “We should be dry for the balance of Sunday afternoon and evening.”

Scattered showers could return Monday, totaling up to a quarter inch and covering 60 percent of the state.

“Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week will be dry,” said Martin. “We’re seeing precipitation tracks stay a little bit farther south. Across the heart of the Corn Belt and down into the Ohio Valley, we do see temperature staying warm.”

Martin is forecasting the next threat of moisture will develop Thursday June 25.
