Rain falls on Ann Arbor area as temperatures head into mid 50s

By AnnArbor.com Staff

Overnight rain continued into Friday morning across much of Washtenaw County, part of a warming trend that will continue all weekend.

Rainfall could reach 0.2 inches, according to forecasts. It may taper off by mid-morning, but could pick up again in the afternoon.

Friday's high is forecast at 54, with an even-warmer Saturday likely: the high on Saturday could reach 59, when partly sunny skies also are forecast.

However, Friday morning's temperature at 6 a.m. was 35 in Ann Arbor, leaving some lingering risk of slick roadways.

Tonight's low is likely to remain in the low 40s, removing likelihood of rain icing on roads and bridges.

Winds could reach 20 mph on both Friday and Saturday, with gusts up to 30 mph possible Saturday.

More-typical winter weather returns Sunday, with a high of 37 and low of 21 forecast.

The normal high for Jan. 11 is 32, while the normal low is 19.

What does Fox News have to say about these bizarre weather patterns? Whatever the oil companies tell them to say to enable the greedy barons to be able to buy another yacht. There are the real weather reports and then there are the Fox News reports.

I'm sure the ducks would be loving the rain Bertha, but alas most have flown south. Then again there are those pesky geese who refuse to migrate, so I'll say 'honk' in the more appropriate term this time around. :)
