Lansing Should See Warm Weather Just in Time for Spring
After all this Winter's snow and frigid temps, we are finally going to see some warmer weather, and just in time for Spring!
Warm Weather This Wednesday
As early as tomorrow (Wednesday, March 16th) WILX News 10 Meteorologist, Colton Cichoracki, says that we'll get a "southernly breeze that will bring temperatures into the 60s" by Wednesday afternoon.
That warm air is going to stick around through most of the day Thursday, March 17th, making for a decently warm St. Patrick's Day for those who might be celebrating the holiday. And while Spring may not have officially started, you can expect more Spring-like temps for Thursday, as well. Expect Thursday to be in the 60s most of the day.
Lansing Weather Forecast Includes Rain
Beginning Thursday evening, we will start to see temperatures drop, giving way to a couple of cooler days, but nothing too cold. Friday and Saturday will see highs in the low to mid-40s. It's the rain you'll want to be aware of.
Cichoracki tells us of a low-pressure system that's coming into town and "will likely bring some rain to Mid-Michigan." And not just rain, but possibly snow as well.
The Weather Channel expects rain showers all throughout the day on Friday, as well as into Saturday morning. With low temperatures dropping down to the low to mid-30s Friday night, there's a chance we could see some snow showers into Saturday morning. Hopefully, nothing will get too slick as the snow showers give in to warmer temps on Saturday and turn back into rain showers.
What's the Weather for the First Day of Spring?
If you're looking forward to the first day of Spring (Sunday, March 20th), you'll be happy to hear that we actually have some Spring-like temps in store for us.
The Weather Channel anticipates that Sunday will see sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 50s.
Thankfully, we won't see any crazy weather like the kind that leads to a disaster. You can take a look at some of the most expensive weather and climate disasters in recent decades in the gallery below.
