Two high pressure systems are bringing drier air to our area, and even helped with some late-day sunshine. One of those high pressure systems is located north of Lake Superior, the other near the Kentucky-Ohio border. Cloud cover is increasing off to our west, over Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska. That extensive cloudiness will move into our area over the weekend.
Clear skies and light winds make a winning combination for cold overnight temperatures. Away from the lakeshore, lows will drop to the single numbers. Lows will drop to about 5 degrees in Alpena (away from the shoreline/by the airport), 2 degrees in Mio, Michigan and 9 degrees in Oscoda, Michigan. Cloud cover will increase predawnn.
This storm system over Nevada and Utah will bring more impactful weather downstate, where some places in southern Michigan will get few inches of snow Saturday night into Sunday. Northeast Michigan might get brushed by a few flurries Monday, amounting to almost nothing.
Saturday: Cold early, mostly cloudy. Predawn temperatures will drop to about 5 degrees. Temperatures will rise to the upper teens in the late-morning. Afternoon highs will reach close to 26 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the middle/lower 20s.
Sunday: Cloudy skies, a warmer morning. Early-morning temperatures will start the day around 20 degrees. Afternoon highs will get up to around 27 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the middle/lower 20s.
Monday: A chance of a few flurries. Early-morning temperatures will go into the upper teens. Afternoon highs will be near 26 degrees. Evening temperatures will cool to around 20 degrees or the upper teens.
