High temperatures today reached 50 degrees in Alpena, 46 degrees in Atlanta and 52 degrees in Oscoda. Cool temperatures were maintained by gusty winds from the northwest combined with clouds and showers. Winds out of the northwest will keep cool temperatures in our area tomorrow, but will likely be less gusty.
Showers are wrapping around, behind the storm system that brought soaking rain yesterday. Drier weather to the west will be moving in tomorrow although plenty of cloud cover will remain. A greater amount of sunshine will arrive Friday.
Low temperatures will cool to about 38 degrees overnight. Mostly cloudy skies will last all day tomorrow and high temperatures will reach only 48 degrees. Winds will come from the northwest, about 15 mph.
Cool temperatures lately have made the leaves change color more rapidly. We are seeing more vibrant colors on the local trees, and peak color changes are expected to take place within the next couple days. By the end of the month, color changes will progress past peak conditions, turning browner, and leaves will begin to drop more quickly.
Temperatures will remain cool tomorrow with highs in the upper 40s and mostly cloudy skies. Friday is looking brighter and afternoon temperatures will reach the lower 50s. High temperatures will warm close to 60 degrees on Saturday with a chance of showers late-day. Dry conditions are likely on Sunday with high temperatures in the lower 60s.
