Brighter Friday; Cold early Saturday; Enjoyable Sunday

High temperatures got up to only the middle and upper 50s for most places across Northeast Michigan. Cloudy and damp skies combined with winds from the northwest contributed to cool temperatures. Light winds out of the north will continue to bring cool temperatures tomorrow.

Most of the rain moved through our area in the morning to early afternoon, then isolated showers have been continuing this evening. About 0.25 inches of rainfall have been measured at Alpena airport. In fact, Lake Michigan has played a role in generating some of the late-day showers. Winds out of the northwest traveling over Lake Michigan have generated lake-enhanced showers. Fair weather to our west, extending across South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa, will shift into our area tomorrow.

Low temperatures tonight will cool to about 40 degrees and drizzle is possible. Cloud cover will linger tomorrow morning, then clearing skies will give way to afternoon sunshine. High temperatures will reach only 52 degrees with light winds from the north. Clear skies are expected tomorrow evening.

Daily high temperatures will improve this weekend. Temperatures will reach the upper 50s on Saturday although rain showers are likely in the evening. On Sunday, highs will warm to the middle 60s with a strong breeze from the west. High temperatures in the upper 50s or near 60 degrees are forecast for Monday and Tuesday.

Cloud cover will clear tomorrow and highs will only get to the lower 50s. Temperatures will drop to the middle 30s early Saturday, so it’ll feel quite cold in the morning.
