Warmer Friday and another bright day

High temperatures today reached the 70s across Northeast Michigan, except Presque Isle county. Sunshine and an overall warm air mass helped our temperatures get warmer. Rogers City was more susceptible to breezes off of Lake Huron, keeping temperatures cooler.

Clear skies extend across the Upper Plains. A storm system affecting the southeast will remain well to the south of Michigan. The next chance of rain will come from a cold front currently sitting over the Pacific Northwest. This cold front will reach our area late Sunday or early Monday.

Low temperatures will drop to the middle 40s tonight with clear skies and nearly calm winds. Mostly sunny skies are expected tomorrow, highs temperatures will reach the 70s in most locations. However, highs will reach the 60s at the immediate shoreline because of light winds off of Lake Huron. Temperatures near 80 degrees are possible around Mio and West Branch tomorrow afternoon.

It will be another great day to go to the beach, although water temperatures in Lake Huron remain chilly. Afternoon temperatures will peak in the 60s at the shoreline with mostly sunny skies, and wave heights will remain very low.

High temperatures will reach the lower 70s (away from the shoreline) for the next few days. More sunshine is expected on Saturday, and dry weather will continue through the daytime hours of Sunday. The chance of showers will increase Sunday night, and the cold front bringing those showers will cause cooler temperatures early next week.
