A tale of two sides of a nearly-stationary boundary: Temperatures today warmed to the 70s and 80s on the southwestern side, while temperatures only reached the 50s on the northern side. In Alpena, the high temperature reached 56 degrees due to mainly cloudy skies and winds out of the east. In Mio, the high temperature reached 75 degrees, on the southwestern side of a boundary separating two air masses and also farther away from Lake Huron.
A few scattered showers are moving through Northern Michigan this evening, although the greatest risk of thunderstorms remains off to our west. Tomorrow morning should start with dry weather then a few showers are possible in the afternoon and evening. After these showers move through, cooler air out of the north will then follow on Sunday.
If you’re traveling to any of the high school baseball/softball games this weekend, you may want a rain jacket for the afternoon. The morning should start dry although mainly cloudy. The chance of showers will increase as of the early afternoon. High temperatures will reach the middle to upper 60s with light winds about 5-10 mph.
Temperatures will cool on Sunday, only reaching the upper 50s with a stronger breeze out of the northwest. At least the cooler air is temporary — temperatures will reach the lower 60s on Monday then into the lower 70s for several days thereafter as winds become out of the southwest.
We are into a stretch of cool temperatures this weekend, at least Sunday is now looking dry and we may even get some sunshine mixed with clouds. Mostly sunny skies are expected on Monday and dry weather will likely continue on Tuesday.
