A fresher air mass is moving over the area, and we will continue to feel the cooler temperatures tomorrow. A breeze out of the north about 15 mph has ushered in high temperatures that reached the middle to upper 70s today across the Sunrise Side.

A high pressure system near the Minnesota-Wisconsin border is providing the clear weather and steering in the cooler, northerly breeze. Clear weather will continue tomorrow along with similar afternoon temperatures. Once the high pressure system slides to our east, temperatures will warm up a few degrees on Thursday.

Low temperatures overnight will drop to 50 degrees in Alpena, and even cooler farther west in Montmorency and Oscoda counties where lows will cool down to the mid-40s. In the morning, temperatures will be getting close to 60 degrees with sunny skies. The sunshine will last all day long with high temperatures reaching the middle and upper 70s.

By late Friday, a trough of low pressure will start to move in from the west, bringing beneficial rainfall Saturday and cooler temperatures over the weekend. As of now, the steadiest rainfall seems likely to occur Saturday afternoon-evening. Approximately a half-inch of rain is expected across the region on Saturday.

Bright skies will shine tomorrow, although it will feel chilly in the early-morning with a low of 50 degrees, then temperatures will warm up to 78 degrees in the afternoon. Temperatures will turn milder on Thursday, climbing to 83 degrees under mostly sunny skies. On Friday, increasing clouds will give way to a chance of showers in the evening. Some much-needed rainfall is in the forecast for Saturday with cooler high temperatures in the upper 70s.
