High temperatures today reached 89 degrees in Alpena, middle 80s elsewhere. Winds out of the south about 15 mph helped bring the elevated heat and humidity.
Scattered thunderstorms moved through areas of Alpena, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties this afternoon provided by an incoming warm front and also aided by high moisture content in the air.
