High temperatures today reached the upper 30s for most of Northeast Michigan. Much of the day was spent under cloudy skies and very light winds. Temperatures will get a little warmer tomorrow, and there could be a little less cloud cover.
Dry conditions currently over Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota will settle into our area for tomorrow. The next storm system is just progressing east of the Rockies, and will reach our area Thursday. It will be warm enough to see rain when this arrives in Alpena. Winds out of the south will bring temperatures into the 40s on Thursday.
Low temperatures tonight will be near 30 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Dry weather is expected from start to finish on Wednesday. There could be a break of sunshine, although mostly cloudy conditions will continue. High temperatures will reach about 43 degrees with very light winds from the southwest.
Looking ahead to Thursday, rain will move in during the morning and last nearly all day. Close to a half-inch of rain is anticipated for Northeast Michigan. There is a small chance this system may end briefly with some snow showers as temperatures drop Thursday night, but any snowfall amounts will be minimal.
Wednesday is looking completely dry and highs will climb to the lower 40s. Periods of rain are likely on Thursday with highs in the middle 40s. Wind speeds will increase Thursday afternoon and remain breezy into Friday. Friday will be much cooler with a breeze from the northwest and highs in the lower to middle 30s.
