Radar and satellite imagery today shows rather unimpressive features across the Midwest. Notice more cloud cover streaming out of Montana and North Dakota. That will eventually grow into a disturbance producing thunderstorms. Around Northeast Michigan, our chance of thunderstorms will increase late Wednesday.
Wednesday morning and afternoon look fine for any outdoor plans. Then late Wednesday evening, a chance of showers and thunderstorms will arrive. Thursday could start with some damp weather, then drying out for the afternoon and evening. Friday will be completely dry. Saturday, watch out for a risk of thunderstorms mainly in the morning and afternoon.
High temperatures Tuesday reached 80 degrees in Alpena, 81 degrees in West Branch, Michigan — although temperatures were cooler lakeside with a high of 75 degrees in Rogers City, Michigan. High temperatures will be similarly warm Wednesday … then cooler late-week.
