High temperatures today reached 82 degrees in Alpena, and this is the first day with temperatures warmer than 80 degrees in a month. The last time the temperature exceeded 80 degrees at Alpena airport was on May 25. Partly cloudy skies, enough sunshine and brisk winds out of the southwest helped bring warm temperatures to our area.
Isolated showers have flared up over southwestern portions of the state, parts of mid-Michigan, and the Upper Peninsula. A few isolated showers are possible late this evening over parts of Northeast Michigan, but otherwise it’s looking mostly dry. Plenty of bright weather is in store for tomorrow.
Low temperatures tonight will remain mild, about 60 degrees. High temperatures tomorrow will rise to the lower 80s with mostly sunny skies and light winds out of the west. Temperatures during the evening will remain warm, in the lower 70s.
Tomorrow will be a fantastic day to spend time at the beach. High temperatures at the shoreline will reach the middle 70s, near-shore wind speeds will be about 5-10 knots and waves running only about 1 foot.
Tomorrow will feel comfortable with dew point values in the 50s. Dew point values climbing to the 60s will make it feel more muggy for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Added humidity will also contribute to daily chances of showers Thursday through Saturday, but no washouts are expected.
Wednesday will feature bright skies and warm temperatures in the lower 80s. Thursday will start dry, then a few showers or thunderstorms are possible in the late-afternoon and evening. Scattered showers/thunderstorms are possible on Friday although the chance will be lower during the evening and nighttime hours. Mostly dry weather is expected on Saturday although a few showers are possible late-day with high temperatures close to 80 degrees.
