Dry and warm this weekend; Slightly cooler next week

High temperatures today reached the middle 50s for most of Northeast Michigan, except along the lakefront. Light winds out of the north, off of Lake Huron, kept temperatures a little cooler in Rogers City. Oscoda also had slightly cooler temperatures with a breeze out of the northeast, off of the lake. Today’s temperatures were several degrees warmer than yesterday, and temperatures will continue to warm this weekend.

A high pressure system over the Upper Peninsula has brought plenty of afternoon sunshine. It will help keep mostly clear skies throughout Northeast Michigan tomorrow. A few showers in Minnesota might affect parts of the Upper Peninsula, but any showers are expected to travel north of our area.

Temperatures overnight will drop to the middle 30s. Tomorrow morning, temperatures will hover around 40 degrees, then warm to the upper 50s in the afternoon. Mostly sunny skies are expected all day long and a light breeze out of the southeast, only about 5 mph.

The vast majority of the weekend is looking dry. Plenty of sunshine is forecast for Saturday, then cloud cover will gradually increase on Sunday. A breeze out of the southwest will bring temperatures in the middle 60s Sunday afternoon. A cold front producing some showers currently near the Montana-Canadian border will eventually shift east — bringing a chance of showers for Northeast Michigan Sunday night to early Monday. Cooler temperatures are then expected early next week. For the rest of Northeast Michigan’s weather forecast, watch the latest weather video by clicking the weather tab at the top of the page.
