Sunny start to August; Increasing humidity toward the weekend

Low temperatures in the early-morning started in the upper 40s, the coldest temperatures seen in about three weeks. Afternoon temperatures reached the middle to upper 70s across Northeast Michigan under mostly sunny skies and light winds from the north.

Clear skies extend across Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota, so we will get another sunny day tomorrow. More cloud cover is expected Friday and into the weekend, but no significant chances of rain will arrive until early next week.

Low temperatures tonight will cool to the 50 degree mark. Sunshine is expected all day tomorrow and afternoon temperatures will warm to the lower 80s. Humidity levels will remain low along with light winds out of the northeast about 5 mph.

Dew point values will stay in the 50s for the next couple of days, so humidity levels will remain comfortable. On Saturday, dew points will likely climb to the 60s so it will feel more muggy. A brief drop in humidity is expected on Sunday, then higher dew points will probably return on Monday making it feel more humid again.

Tomorrow will be sunny and slightly warmer with high temperatures close to 81 degrees. A little more cloud and warmth will move in Friday as high temperatures climb to the middle 80s. Partly cloudy skies are expected Saturday, and high temperatures will reach the lower 80s over the weekend.
