Warm temperatures Tuesday won’t last

A short-lived burst of warm air will move in Tuesday in advance of a low pressure system currently affecting the Canadian Prairies. The warm front will lift north of our area, and temperatures will rise to the lower 60s Tuesday afternoon. The cold front will bring a few scattered rain showers late Tuesday. Then much colder temperatures will follow for Wednesday and Thursday.

Winds out of the south-southwest will be noticeably breezy through much of the day Tuesday, sustained at 15-20 mph. These winds will help bring warm temperatures to Northeast Michigan. Winds will relax briefly, Tuesday night to Wednesday morning. Then Wednesday, a strong breeze coming from the northwest will send in colder temperatures.

Highs Tuesday will reach the lower 60s. Temperatures will become much colder midweek. Wednesday, highs will reach only the upper 30s to around 40 degrees. Even colder temperatures will arrive Thursday with highs in the middle 30s. Then a warming trend is in store late-week. Highs will climb to the middle/upper 40s Friday. Saturday, temperatures will warm to the lower 60s.

Tuesday: Breezy, dry for most of the day, then a chance of showers in the evening. Predawn temperatures will climb to the lower 40s. Afternoon highs will get up to around 61 degrees. Evening temperatures will go from the middle 50s to the middle 40s.

Wednesday: Colder with a late chance of flurries (a light dusting, nothing substantial). Early-morning lows will be near 29 degrees. Afternoon highs will reach close to 39 degrees. Evening temperatures will cool from the lower 30s to the middle 20s.

Thursday: A chilly start to the morning, mostly sunny. Predawn lows will drop to about 18 degrees. Afternoon highs will be around 35 degrees. Evening temperatures will be in the lower 30s/upper 20s.
