A frosty start to June
Mon, 03 Jun 2013 14:07:05 GMT —
Following up a wet and sometimes story week, Northern Michigan returns to cooler than normal temperatures with areas of frost early Monday and again forecasted for early Tuesday morning.
The low pressure system responsible for the thunderstorms last week has moved northeast of the area with early June starting off on the cold side for many.
Temperatures early Monday morning dipped below freezing in our colder outlying spots, although frost fortunately was not too widespread. The coldest location was Moorestown in Missaukee County where it dropped to 25F overnight. Atlanta and Indian River bottomed out at 27F and 28F respectively.
Patchy frost will be an issue for one more morning early Tuesday as light winds and clear skies will allow temps to fall quickly Monday night. A few high wispy clouds may drift in near Lake Michigan overnight keeping temperatures there a touch warmer, however, along/east of Interstate-75 frost is certainly possible.
The next chance for rain does not get in here until late Tuesday night/Wednesday and even then, Northern Michigan will see nothing more than a few showers. High temperatures remain cooler than normal this week with 60's through Thursday. Low-70's expected on Friday.
