Warm and bright tomorrow; Few showers possible Wednesday

High temperatures reached the middle 50s for most most of Northeast Michigan today with mostly cloudy skies. However, temperatures were several degrees cooler at the shoreline with a breeze out of the Northeast at 10-15 mph, off of Lake Huron.

Across the Midwest, a high pressure system is centered over eastern Missouri, which is protecting areas as far north as the Great Lakes from any chance of showers. We should see mostly sunny skies tomorrow while this high pressure system remains the dominant influence over our area’s weather. The next cold front is currently beginning to progress out of southern Canada, near the Montana and North Dakota border. This will bring a chance of showers Wednesday morning-afternoon, and a slight drop in temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday.

Low temperatures tonight will drop to the upper 30s as cloud cover begins to clear. Tomorrow afternoon, temperatures will warm to the upper 60s away from the shoreline, and upper 50s at the shoreline.

Our weather forecast remains dry through tomorrow evening. Then, a cold front dropping in from the northwest will bring a chance of showers Wednesday but we should see a return to drier weather late Wednesday. Another weak disturbance coming from the west could bring another chance of showers Thursday late-day.

Tomorrow will feature dry weather and plenty of sunshine all day long. Warmer temperatures will arrive as well, reaching the middle to upper 60s except cooler at the shoreline. Early Wednesday will start with mild temperatures in the 40s, but also a chance of showers in the morning and afternoon. High temperatures are expected to reach the lower 60s Wednesday afternoon, and a period of dry weather is likely from Wednesday late-afternoon until Thursday midday. Then, the chance of showers picks up again late-day Thursday with afternoon temperatures close to 60 degrees.
