Short-lived cold temperatures tonight; Dry most of Mother’s Day weekend

High temperatures reached close to 50 degrees today with decreasing cloud cover this afternoon. After yesterday’s stormed system moved into eastern Canada, winds picked up out of the northwest which is bringing cool temperatures to our area.

Low temperatures tonight will drop to 32 degrees in Alpena, and upper 20s for some spots farther inland. Widespread temperatures below freezing tonight have caused a Freeze Warning to be issued for all of Northern Lower Michigan, from midnight tonight until 8 a.m. Saturday.

A high pressure system over Iowa is bringing clearing skies. Ahead of the high pressure system, winds are circulating out of the northwest which typically brings cooler temperatures. Once this high pressure system moves east of our area, warmer temperatures will move into our area tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning, temperatures will rise to the upper 30s with mostly sunny skies. A few more clouds are expected tomorrow afternoon and highs should get into the upper 50s away from the shoreline. Temperatures will be cooler near the shoreline because of a light breeze out of the southeast, off of Lake Huron.

Dry weather is expected all day tomorrow with high temperatures in the upper 50s. Sunday will start with dry weather, likely lasting into the afternoon. A storm system currently developing near Texas and Louisiana will move north and bring a chance of showers late Sunday until Monday afternoon. Afternoon temperatures will reach the middle 50s on Sunday, then cooler temperatures are expected Monday with highs near 60 degrees.
