Just a day late on this. That’s not too bad, right?
At 753PM, ET, Battle Creek was reporting a temperature of 32 degrees with overcast skies. Battle Creek and the rest of Michigan found itself at the tail end of a retreating upper level trough. Encroaching warm weather in conjunction with the departing trough are leading to a broad swath of low clouds over Michigan, which will prevent much of a cool down overnight. Fortunately, the clouds are thin, and they will burn off quickly tomorrow morning.
An upper level ridge is moving into the region, and is going to bring about some unseasonably warm weather to the Lower Peninsula. A sharp, very springlike trough will develop over the northern High Plains Sunday night into Monday morning. This will induce a bona fide warm front that will bring a few showers into the Battle Creek area on Monday evening.

A warm front! That’s terrific. For the time being, there isn’t a lot on satellite right now. There are low clouds smothering Michigan, but the tops are low enough that they aren’t really showing up on satellite.
