4Warn WeatherWelcome to Wednesday!

A cold front is causing temperatures to dip slightly today and Thursday.

Temps begin in the 50s today and will warm into the 60s by mid-morning -- though those near the state line could see 70 degrees. Temperatures will then stabilize and slowly fall throughout the day.

Temps should be in the 50s by dinnertime, and will fall into the 40s this evening.

Overnight Wednesday into Thursday, those in the northern part of our area could see temps in the 30s. Skies will be mainly clear, allowing temps to drop quickly tonight.

A frost advisory has been issued for some early Thursday morning, so you may want to cover any plants in the ground.

Frost advisory Thursday

Temps will especially be cold for many early Thursday morning, and likely dropping into the 30s.

A frost advisory has been issued for 2 a.m.-8 a.m. on Thursday for Genesee, Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Sanilac, and St. Clair counties. Frost is possible on some elevated surfaces and plants.

Frost Advisory in effect for most of Southeastern Michigan Thursday Morning with temperatures into the 30s possible

Warming up for Memorial Day

Temps will remain cool on Thursday, with highs in the 60s, which is below average.

We’ll begin warming up on Friday, with highs in the 70s. Expect plenty of sunshine.

Highs will be in the upper 70s on Saturday, and even warming in the low 80s by Sunday. Skies will be sunny on Saturday, and will have some clouds mixed in on Sunday.

An area of low pressure will also add some cloud cover to our Monday forecast -- but don’t expect any moisture with those clouds. Highs Monday will be in the low 80s.

Summer-like heat ahead?

Temps will rise even more on Tuesday, with highs expected to reach the mid-to-upper 80s. More sunshine is expected Tuesday.

By next Wednesday, it’s possible we could see highs in the upper 80s near 90 degrees, depending which forecast model you look it.

It appears that above-average highs will continue through the end of May and into the first few days of June.
