Isolated afternoon showers Wednesday; Gray early then clearing Thursday

High temperatures today reached the lower and middle 70s across Northeast Michigan today. Much of the day was spent under mostly sunny skies although a few isolated showers developed over Alpena County in the afternoon.

Tomorrow will be nearly a repeat of today with dry weather and some sunshine in the morning. A few spotty showers will be possible in the afternoon, driven by lake breeze convergence — when winds off of Lake Huron collide with winds off of Lake Michigan — and daytime heating peaking in the mid-afternoon.

Overnight low temperatures will drop to 50 degrees with partly cloudy skies after midnight. Much of the day should remain dry despite a low chance of showers in the afternoon. High temperatures will reach the upper 60s, although it will be a few degrees cooler at the shoreline with gentle winds out of the east.

For going to the beach or boating, high temperatures will reach the lower 60s at the shoreline. Waves are running quite light, about 1 foot or less, and the water temperature of Lake Huron has warmed to 53 degrees.

We should see some sunshine times throughout Wednesday with highs in the upper 60s. Thursday will start with gray skies early, then clearing midday to afternoon, and high temperatures will reach 70 degrees. Mostly sunny skies are expected on Friday with high temperatures near 70 degrees. That’s where the fair weather ends, the weekend is looking unsettled and showery.
