Warmer Friday and a chance of showers late; More humid this weekend

High temperatures today reached the lower 70s for most of Northeast Michigan. In some places, to the north and west of Alpena, temperatures reached only the upper 60s. Cloudy skies persisted all day and a few scattered showers moved through Northeast Michigan. A lack of sunshine and light winds from the northeast contributed to these cool temperatures.

Scattered showers over our area are gradually moving toward the east, and cloud cover should partially clear tonight. Partly cloudy skies are expected tomorrow morning, then cloud cover will increase in the afternoon and evening. The next disturbance currently affecting eastern North Dakota and South Dakota will move east, and produce a chance of showers Friday evening-overnight.

Low temperatures will cool close to 50 degrees tonight, however patchy fog is possible late tonight until early tomorrow morning. Tomorrow will start with partly cloudy skies and morning temperatures around the upper 50s, then afternoon temperatures will reach the upper 70s. Later in the evening, a few showers are possible with temperatures in the upper 60s.

Humidity levels will feel comfortable tomorrow. Dew point values will climb to the 60s on Saturday and near 70 on Sunday, making it feel increasingly more humid. It will continue to feel muggy early next week with dew point values in the 60s lasting until then.

A few showers are possible tomorrow evening, but skies should remain dry in the morning and afternoon. High temperatures tomorrow will get close to 77 degrees. Saturday is looking mainly dry although plenty of clouds are expected and afternoon temperatures will warm close to 81 degrees. High temperatures will rise to about 84 degrees on Sunday, although a few showers or thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon-evening. Monday is looking bright with warm temperatures in the lower-middle 80s.
