Brief intrusion of fall weather sweeps across Northern Michigan

Clouds and showers will hang around Tuesday along with unseasonably cool temperatures.

As we head into what are typically the warmest few weeks of the year, it will be far from it Tuesday/Wednesday with showers and unseasonably cool weather locked in place across Northern Michigan.

Cooler weather will take up residence across the north Tuesday into Wednesday with the majority of us looking at 60's for daytime highs. Our normal high this time of year is close to 80F. In fact, mid-60's are average highs for mid-May or late-September across Northern Michigan.

Showers will also be noted with a rumble or two of thunder possible as low pressure pulls away from the area. Showers will be most widespread Tuesday with clouds hanging tough as well. Winds will race in from the northwest leading to a very fall-like afternoon. Highs Tuesday will range from 63F at Sault Ste. Marie/Newberry/Petoskey to 72F at Clare.

We will keep a couple of showers in the weather forecast for Wednesday although they will be very sporadic with more sunshine peeking through. Winds will change very little into Wednesday remaining out of the northwest keeping high temperatures stuck in the 60's for another day.

There will be some improvement late week as high pressure builds in scouring out the clouds Thursday and Friday and allowing for warmer temperature with highs returning into the 70's.
