The latest weather disturbance will continue to dive south into Upper Michigan today. This feature has been tossing low level cloud cover into the area and even a few spotty rain showers have shown up on radar. Although there is not a lot of moisture to work with, northerly winds will keep low clouds and isolated sprinkles in the forecast throughout our late morning and early afternoon.
Those winds out of the north ensure that another below average day of temperatures is also in store. Highs will struggle to break out of the low 60s along the Superior shoreline this afternoon. Looking farther south and inland, highs will reach into the upper 60s and possibly low 70s in the warmest places.
As high pressure continues to build in from the west, we??ll see any lingering moisture getting kicked out of the forecast area quickly this evening and overnight. Conditions will become clear and calm, especially across the western half of the Upper Peninsula overnight. This will open the trap door, allowing temperatures to sink into the low and mid 30s in those favored cool spots across the interior west. Elsewhere, lows will be held in mid and upper 40s, especially along the immediate shoreline where conditions will stay warmest. We do not expect temperatures to fall below the freezing point overnight. However, your tomatoes would probably appreciate being covered through those overnight hours.
After a chilly start on Wednesday, temperatures will quickly rebound into the upper 60s/low 70s. Wednesday will mark a slow warming trend which will carry us right into next week. Daytime highs are expected to reach into upper 70s and low 80s this weekend.
Broad high pressure will continue to slide eastward across the Great Lakes over the next several days. That means we??ll stay dry into week??s end. There is a chance for a few hit/miss showers and storms Saturday and Sunday. However, the overall trend will be mainly sunny, dry and warm with above average temperatures.
