Getting sticky over the weekend with a risk of thunderstorms Saturday

A couple spotty showers passed through Northeast Michigan Thursday. We will not see much rain over the next 24 hours, but we could see a brief spotty shower Friday afternoon. Looking well out to the west, a storm system developing over North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana will move east and increase the chance of thunderstorms early Saturday.

High temperatures Thursday got up to 74 degrees in Alpena. Temperatures got warmer west of our area, Chicago and Minneapolis had highs of 85 degrees. That warmer air will be heading in for Friday and through the weekend.

Dew points will increase to the 60s Friday, making it feel more muggy. Saturday will feel very sticky with dew points near 70. High humidity levels will remain Sunday. Dew points will drop Monday, so it’ll feel more comfortable. Humidity levels will likely rise again Tuesday.

Friday: Partly cloudy with a small chance of an afternoon shower. Early-morning temperatures will head down to about 58 degrees. Afternoon highs will warm to near 82 degrees. Evening temperatures will go into the 70s.
