Cooler Wednesday, Drier late-week

High temperatures today reached the middle 50s, including 56 degrees in Alpena and 55 degrees in West Branch. Winds will shift out of the west tomorrow, which will help transport cooler temperatures from the Upper Plains to our area.

Scattered showers will remain possible overnight and early tomorrow morning. Cloud cover which extends to the Minnesota-North Dakota border will have to progress through our area, so clearing will be very slow and gradual. Mostly cloudy but dry weather is anticipated Thursday-Friday, then finally brighter skies are forecast for Saturday.

Low temperatures tonight will cool to the upper 30s. A chance of showers will continue into tomorrow morning with temperatures close to 40 degrees. Mostly cloudy skies are expected in the afternoon-evening, and high temperatures will reach about 48 degrees. Winds will come from the west, about 15 mph.

It will feel cool tomorrow with a brisk breeze and highs in the upper 40s. Mostly cloudy skies are expected Thursday with highs close to 49 degrees. A few peeks of sun are possible Friday although plenty of cloud cover will last, and high temperatures will reach the upper 40s. Saturday is looking sunny … then Sunday’s weather depends how far north a storm system out of the deep south gets toward our area.
