High temperatures Wednesday warmed to the middle 40s across Northeast Michigan. Temperature got up to 45 degrees in Alpena, 46 degrees in Saginaw, Mich. and 43 degrees in Cheboygan, Mich. Notice, though, temperatures in the western U.P. and northern Minnesota were several degrees cooler. There, highs reached 37 degrees in Houghton, Mich. and only 30 degrees in Duluth, Minn. Some of that cooler air will move in Thursday.
Tonight and Thursday morning are looking completely dry. A weak disturbance will drop in from the north. That will increase the chance of flurries in the afternoon and evening. The fact is, the chances aren’t particularly high. Medium chances here indicate the potential of some scattered hit-and-miss flurries during Thursday afternoon and evening.
Thursday: A chance of flurries during the second half of the day. Winds will come from the WSW at 10-15 mph. Early-morning lows will be near 29 degrees. Temperatures will rise to the middle 30s in the late-morning. Afternoon highs will be near 38 degrees. Evening temperatures will head into the middle/lower 30s.
Friday: Mostly cloudy. Predawn lows will cool to about 29 degrees. Late-morning temperatures will be in the middle 30s. Afternoon highs will get close to 38 degrees. Evening temperatures will dip to about 30 degrees.
Saturday: A mix of sun & clouds. Early-morning lows will go into the middle 20s. Late-morning temperatures will be in the upper 20s. Afternoon highs will be near 35 degrees. Evening temperatures will drop to the upper 20s. While Saturday’s temperatures will feel somewhat cooler, those values are close to the long-term normals for early-December!
