It’s that time of year when you don’t really know what you’re going to get with Michigan weather. Last weekend, it was super hot across much of Michigan. It really felt like summer. I had my shorts on and took a road trip across the state to Grand Rapids. I even sat on the edge of Lake Michigan at my uncle’s cottage.

But, then reality hit. A big cool-down worked its was across the state this week, and Michigan weather went back into the 30s at night. So cold. So, what’s ahead for Michigan weather?

Now, it appears we’re in for another roller coaster of weather for the next week. Looking at Detroit, on Thursday (April 20), it’s going to feel like summer again, with highs near 80s. This trend is also apparent elsewhere in the state, according to In Lansing, Thursday temperatures will top out at 81. For Grand Rapids, Thursday will get into the upper 70s. In Flint, we’re looking at 81 as a Thursday high. But, the summer weather will be short, as another cold front is projected to move into the area. Temperatures will be in the 50s and 60s for much of this weekend throughout Michigan, and next week has highs in the 40s, 50s and 60s. That’s way too cold, if you ask me.

In other words, spring is here, but it feels more like an emotional roller coaster of temperatures. We’re hot for one day, on Thursday, and then unseasonably cold. I’m a huge fan of hot weather, so I say, bring on the 80s and 90s, but it doesn’t appear Mother Nature is going that direction.
