Chance of showers Friday evening; Cooler this weekend

High temperatures today reached the middle to upper 70s with mostly sunny skies. Winds out of the northwest about 15 mph helped temperatures near the shoreline, because the wind direction was coming over the land instead of over the water.

Severe weather continues across parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey while dry weather extends across the Upper Midwest. We will continue to see mainly dry conditions through tomorrow afternoon. A cold front from central Canada moving southward will bring a chance of showers to our area tomorrow evening, then cooler temperatures this weekend.

Baseball District semifinals and finals are taking place in Mio tomorrow: For the first round of games getting underway at 10 a.m., you may want to bring a jacket or a sweater for temperatures in the middle 50s. Temperatures will reach the lower 60s by noon, then you won’t need a jacket in the afternoon with highs warming to the lower 70s. Partly cloudy skies are expected with a slight chance of showers late in the day.

More cloud cover will build in the afternoon, and afternoon temperatures will be several degrees cooler at the shoreline. High temperatures will likely reach the middle 60s in Alpena with light winds out of the southeast.

Tomorrow will start with dry weather then a few showers are possible tomorrow evening. Saturday is looking dry although mostly cloudy, then cooler temperatures will arrive Sunday. A few patchy showers are possible Sunday, but there should be a few dry breaks in between with highs only the upper 50s. The cooling trend is temporary, high temperatures will get warmer early next week.
