Plenty of cloud cover is hovering over Northern Michigan in advance of an incoming rain-maker. A broad area of low pressure centered over Iowa will gradually shift eastward, spreading periods of steady rain into Northeast Michigan.
High temperatures across the Sunrise Side warmed into the lower 80s, except at the shoreline where a breeze out of the east approximately 10 mph has kept temperatures a few degrees cooler. Temperatures will cool across the board tomorrow as cloudy skies and rain move in.
Rain will move into the area late tonight, and become steady with occasional downpours tomorrow morning. Periods of rain will last into the afternoon, then taper to patchy showers in the late-afternoon and evening. High temperatures are forecast to reach only into the lower 70s.
Rainfall amounts across most of the area are expected to reach at least a half-inch. Some locations at shoreline may see rainfall amounts closer to one inch, while areas to the northwest of Alpena may see lower rainfall amounts.
After rain and cooler temperatures tomorrow, clearing skies will take shape on Wednesday. Temperatures midweek will go on a brief warming trend. Highs should warm into the middle and upper 70s on Wednesday, then lower 80s on Thursday with plenty of sunshine.
