Afternoon showers Thursday; Cooler and dry Friday

High temperatures today warmed into the 60s away from the shoreline. Winds out of the southwest brought afternoon temperatures 15-20 degrees warmer than yesterday! However, a light breeze off of Lake Huron kept temperatures in the 50s for most places near the shoreline.

Skies will remain dry tonight with just a few clouds. A region of scattered showers currently extends from southern Montana through South Dakota. This region will shift east, and will provide a chance of showers in our area tomorrow afternoon and early-evening.

Low temperatures tonight will drop close to 40 degrees. In the morning, mostly sunny skies are expected early with temperatures in the middle 40s, then more cloud cover will build midday. A few showers are possible late in the day, then cooler air will arrive Friday.

Temperatures will warm into the 60s again tomorrow, starting with dry weather, then a few showers are possible later on. On Friday, winds out of the northwest will bring cooler temperatures. Dry weather will last from Friday through much of Saturday, then showers are possible late Saturday to early Sunday and possibly mix with snow showers Saturday night.
