Colder temperatures through the weekend; More sunshine on Saturday

Across the Midwest, 5 p.m. temperatures show the warmth is leaving to the east, and colder air is on the way in. Temperatures at this point are in the 60s in Buffalo and Pittsburgh, Upper 40s here in Alpena, and chiller temperatures in the 30s across the Upper Peninsula and much of Minnesota. Brisk winds out of the west will bring the colder temperatures into our area.

The rain that fell in Northeast Michigan last evening is moving east through New York and Pennsylvania. Some lingering weak instability has been producing a few patchy showers in Northern Michigan. Mostly cloudy skies will continue tomorrow, though wind speeds will also weaken.

Tomorrow, early-morning temperatures will start in the mid-30s. High temperatures will only reach the upper 40s, bringing a much colder end to the week with mostly cloudy skies. Winds out of the northwest will relax to about 10 mph.

For this upcoming weekend, Saturday will start with cold temperatures in the lower 30s in the early-morning. At least more sunshine is expected with partly cloudy skies and highs close to 50 degrees. A light breeze out of the southwest will bring slightly warmer temperatures on Sunday, but a weak cold front will drop in from the northwest bringing a few scattered showers. Cloudy skies and slightly cooler temperatures will move in Monday.
