Dry and cooler this weekend

High temperatures today reached the middle 80s to lower 90s across Northeast Michigan. A hot and humid air mass ahead of an incoming cold front have helped trigger a couple rounds of thunderstorms. After the cold front passes through our area tonight, we will get cooler temperatures this weekend.

Rounds of heavy showers and thunderstorms have been moving through Northeast Michigan. The air mass over the Upper Peninsula is much drier, and that will move in tomorrow. Dry weather will begin late tonight and continue until early next week.

Low temperatures tonight will drop to the lower 60s and skies will become partly cloudy. Skies will remain partly cloudy tomorrow with high temperatures near 80 degrees, and it will feel more comfortable because of lower humidity levels.

Great days for going to the beach are coming up this weekend. High temperatures at the shoreline will reach the upper 70s on Saturday and lower 70s on Sunday. Waves will run 1-2 feet high although it will be a little breezy with winds at 10-15 knots over the near-shore waters.

High temperatures will reach 80 degrees on Saturday, then cooler on Sunday with highs in the middle 70s because of light winds off of Lake Huron. Temperatures will warm into the 80s early next week, reaching 80 degrees on Monday and lower 80s on Tuesday.

Dry weather is moving in this weekend, partly cloudy skies are expected on Saturday, and mostly sunny skies on Sunday. More sunshine is expected on Monday… the next chance of showers will arrive on Wednesday.
