Mainly dry weather and cooler temperatures midweek

Temperatures today reached highs in the lower 80s except near the shoreline. Light breezes off of Lake Huron kept temperatures in the upper 70s for Rogers City, Harrisville and Tawas City. Overall, mostly cloudy skies and limited breaks of sunshine have lasted all day long.

A disturbance bringing showers over Minnesota will continue to move east. This will mostly affect northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula tomorrow. A separate batch of showers currently near the Illinois-Wisconsin border will also travel east, moving through southern Lower Michigan, Indiana and Ohio during the next 24 hours. Northeast Michigan will likely get caught in a dry gap of weather in between these two areas of showers.

Skies will remain mostly cloudy tonight as low temperatures cool to the middle 50s. Tomorrow afternoon, slightly less cloud cover is likely, allowing for some breaks of sunshine. High temperatures will reach the middle 70s with light winds out of the northeast, about 10 mph.

Temperatures over the next few days will become cooler than normal. A prolonged duration of light winds from the east/northeast — off of Lake Huron — will keep temperatures cooler in our area. High temperatures will reach the middle 70s tomorrow, then lower 70s Wednesday and Thursday. Winds will shift out of the south late-week, which will bring warmer temperatures for Friday and the weekend, close to the 80 degree mark for afternoon highs.

Cloud cover will decrease midday tomorrow, and high temperatures will reach about 75 degrees. Temperatures will become slightly cooler Wednesday and Thursday. A high of 72 degrees is expected Wednesday afternoon, and 73 degrees on Thursday. Partly cloudy skies are expected over the next few days. High temperatures will reach the upper 70s on Friday, then the next chance of showers will move in Saturday.
