Temperatures will remain somewhat warmer on Saturday with highs in the upper 30s. Winds will shift out of the northwest on Sunday, and that will will bring colder temperatures back into Northern Michigan. Highs will reach only the lower to middle 20s Sunday afternoon. For Monday and Tuesday, high temperatures will get into the upper 20s.

Cloudy skies and warmer temperatures will last through the end of the week. Highs will reach the upper 30s both Friday and Saturday. A few rain showers are possible late-day Saturday with temperatures several degrees above the freezing mark.
