High temperatures today reached 80 degrees in Alpena. Winds out of the northwest have helped keep the humidity levels comfortable. Later in the week, winds will pick up out of the southwest, bringing warmer and muggier air to our area.
Some very low instability caused limited, isolated showers to develop this afternoon. Dry weather has been the rule most of the day, and later this evening cloud cover will begin to clear out of our area. High pressure centered over Iowa will bring mostly clear skies tomorrow. Our next chance of showers will arrive Saturday, brought by a system over the Upper Plains traveling eastbound.
Low temperatures tonight will cool to the middle and upper 50s with mostly clear skies and light winds. Partly cloudy skies are expected tomorrow, and temperatures will warm to the middle 80s in the afternoon. Temperatures will remain warm in the evening, in the lower 70s.
It will feel more humid tomorrow because dew point values will climb to the 60s. The humidity levels on Friday should be lower, then it will get muggier again over the weekend. With some increased moisture combining with a disturbance moving toward our area, we could get a few showers on Saturday and Sunday.
High temperatures will get close to 85 degrees tomorrow afternoon with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will warm to the upper 80s Friday afternoon. The weekend will feel warm and muggy with high temperatures in the middle to upper 80s.
