LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Friday is a First Alert Weather Day because of a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms late in the day.

Before Friday’s system arrives, we will see more rain on Wednesday. That rain will continue through the afternoon and it will really keep our temperatures in check. In fact, expect to see high temperatures more than 10 degrees below average with highs largely in the 50s. Most of this rain will wrap up during the evening hours.

Clouds will hold strong overnight with lows in the lower 50s. On Thursday, we should see some sunshine return late in the day with some mild temperatures in the middle to upper 70s.

First Alert Weather Day: We continue to track the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms on Friday with gusty winds and large hail being the main threats. What will happen is a warm front will lift into the area first late on Thursday. This will set the stage for a very warm day on Friday with highs getting into the middle 80s. Later in the day, a cold front will move in and this could spark off some showers and thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center has the area in a slight risk for severe weather. As of Wednesday morning, computer models were still all over the place with how this was going to pan out. Some models keep all rain out of here until Friday night into Saturday so there is still some uncertainty with how this will happen. It is far from a guarantee that this severe threat holds so make sure you stay with the News 10 First Alert Weather Team as we fine tune the details.

We will see some rain linger into Saturday as well with highs in the lower 70s. After that, we cool back down with dry weather for Sunday and into next week with highs in the 60s.
