High temperatures today reached the mid-60s south of Alpena and west of Lake Huron, where the weather was drier and the influence of Lake Huron was less. Winds out of the east combined with clouds and showers kept temperatures cooler around Alpena, where high temperatures reached the upper 50s.
Two storm systems will affect us this week — the first is currently over Minnesota and Wisconsin and will provide soaking rain to our area tonight, most locations in Northeast Michigan can expect 0.5-1 inch of rain. A gap of dry weather will take over tomorrow afternoon through early Wednesday. The second storm system currently over Utah will give a chance of isolated showers/thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon.
A few showers may continue tomorrow morning with areas of fog. Skies should begin to clear in the afternoon as high temperatures reach the upper 50s. Warmer temperatures will arrive Wednesday.
If you have any beach and boating interests for tomorrow, be aware that a Small Craft Advisory has been issued until 4 p.m. tomorrow afternoon due to gusty winds and high waves.
Some dry weather will move in tomorrow afternoon although temperatures will remain cool with light winds out of the northeast. Any showers/thunderstorms on Wednesday should remain isolated, so no widespread soaking is expected. Temperatures on Wednesday will warm to the upper 60s. High temperatures near 70 degrees are expected on Thursday with partly cloudy skies, and sunny skies on Friday with highs in the upper 60s.
