Warmer temperatures late-week; Low chances of showers Friday and late Saturday

Fair skies will continue tonight and for the next few days. Showers near the Minnesota-Canada border will track to the north. Our next storm system is just arriving on the Pacific Coast, and it could bring a chance of showers as of Friday. The greatest chance of rain will arrive over the weekend.

High temperatures today reached the lower 70s near Lake Huron and middle 70s farther west. Light winds from the southeast, off of Lake Huron, kept temperatures a little cooler at the shoreline. Afternoon highs reached 71 degrees in Alpena, 72 degrees in Oscoda, 74 in West Branch and 75 in Atlanta.

Hurricane Humberto is moving toward the northeast, heading away from the U.S. East Coast. Humberto is currently a category 2 hurricane with winds speeds of 100 mph. It is forecast to track just north of Bermuda late Wednesday. It could bring tropical storm (39-73 mph) or even hurricane force (74+ mph) winds to Bermuda. After that, it will continue moving northeastward and weaken to a tropical storm this weekend.

Low temperatures overnight will cool to the middle 50s and patchy fog could develop. Any fog will dissipate tomorrow morning, giving way to partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will warm to the upper 70s.

Temperatures will remain considerably warmer then normal over the next few days. Highs are forecast to reach the 80 degree mark Thursday and Friday, then rise to the lower 80s Saturday. The normal high temperature for mid-September sits around 70 degrees. A cold front moving through our area on Sunday will initiate cooler temperatures early next week.

High temperatures will reach about 77 degrees tomorrow with partly cloudy skies. Partly cloudy skies are expected on Thursday, and high temperatures will warm to about 80 degrees. A few spotty showers are possible Friday, but plenty of dry time is expected. Saturday will likely start with dry weather, then a chance of showers will develop late Saturday. Over the next seven days, the chance of rain is highest on Sunday which also includes a risk of thunderstorms.
