High temperatures today reached the middle 70s well west of Lake Huron and middle 60s at the shoreline because of light winds out of the east, off of Lake Huron. Afternoon temperatures will be similar for the next couple of days.
Mostly clear skies currently over our area will continue tonight. A disturbance over Minnesota and Iowa is generating showers and thunderstorms, and this disturbance will continue to move east. As a result, a few isolated showers are possible tomorrow afternoon in Northeast Michigan. However, most of the day should end up dry.
Summer will start this Friday with temperatures below normal in Northeast Michigan. The Fourth of July is coming up in 17 days; and by the start of the Brown Trout Festival on July 19, the normal high temperature for Alpena Airport is 80 degrees which is the warmest time of year in Northeast Michigan.
Overnight low temperatures will drop to the middle and upper 40s around Northeast Michigan with mostly clear skies. Tomorrow will start with partly cloudy skies and morning temperatures in the middle 50s. A low chance of showers will develop in the afternoon as high temperatures warm to the lower 70s, although it will likely be a few degrees cooler at the shoreline of Lake Huron. Partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures near 60 degrees are expected tomorrow evening.
A few isolated showers are possible during the afternoon hours of both Tuesday and Wednesday. High temperatures will reach the lower 70s tomorrow and upper 60s on Wednesday. The situation on Thursday is a bit different, a few showers are possible in the morning to midday hours mainly south of Harrisville, the chance of rain early Thursday is much lower heading north.
