Final day of near if not record heat as temperatures tumble Wednesday
Northern Michigan will bake under one more near if not record warm day Tuesday before a strong cold front passes by dropping temperatures a solid 20-30 degrees by Wednesday.
A cold front remains (as it has been the past couple of days) west of the area but will finally get a push across the area ending the recent heat. That being said, we will still get quite toasty Tuesday with temperatures ranging from 77-91F across our area. Coolest readings (upper-70's) will be in western Mackinac County into Luce counties with the warmest temperatures in the Traverse City area and also the Clare/Mt. Pleasant areas. Sunshine early but clouds will infiltrate the area later in the day.
That front will pass Tuesday night leading to at least scattered showers or a rumble of thunder overnight. I don't believe this will be a big rain producer for us, but showers will develop overnight with temperatures overnight from 51-60F.
We will feel the cooler weather Wednesday as temperatures simply won't warm much if at all. Skies will start mostly cloudy with a few passing light rain showers possible Wednesday. We will all notice the dramatic temperature drop with highs from 58-62F.
Cooler weather hangs around through the remainder of the week with another chance for showers later Thursday into part of Friday as another shot of cooler/disturbed weather passes by.
It does dry out for the upcoming weekend with 60's to near 70F temperatures along with a good deal of sunshine.
