Bright weekend, high temperatures climb to 40s

High temperatures today reached the lower to middle 30s across Northeast Michigan. Following yesterday’s storm, winds out of the northwest have brought colder air to our area. That will change this weekend with temperatures returning to the 40s.

Dry weather extends across much of the Midwest and Upper Plains. Cloud cover will decrease tonight, and the weekend will start with mostly sunny skies. More clouds mixed with some breaks of sunshine are expected Sunday.

Low temperatures tonight will cool to the lower/middle 20s. Winds out of the southwest about 10 mph will help bring warmer temperatures for Saturday. Tomorrow will be bright and high temperatures will climb to about 41 degrees.

Highs will get into the lower 40s on Saturday with a healthy dose of sunshine. A greater amount cloud cover is expected on Sunday, early-morning lows will start in the middle 20s and afternoon highs will reach the lower 40s. Monday will be cloudy and high temperatures will get into the lower or middle 40s. A storm system coming from Texas/Oklahoma could potentially give a mixture of rain and snow late Tuesday to early Wednesday — stay tuned to weather updates early next week once those details become clearer.

Looking ahead to Thanksgiving, temperatures will not get brutally cold like last year. On Thanksgiving 2018, the early-morning low was 5 degrees and the high temperature reached 25 degrees. The forecast for this year is early-morning lows in the 20s and highs in the 30s. ‘Normal’ (30-year average) temperatures for Thanksgiving are lows in the middle 20s and highs in the upper 30s.
