Temps to tumble into the 40's by the weekend
Wed, 08 May 2013 13:12:48 GMT —
They say all things eventually even out, and that will be the case with temperatures across Northern Michigan as the recent stretch of above normal days will be replaced with a chilly weekend.
Once again, several locations hit the 80's Tuesday with Indian River and Wellston peaking at 83F. Even Trout Lake in Chippewa County got into the low-80's.
We will have one more day of that before cooler weather will settle in. Low pressure and a cold front will put the squeeze play on Northern Michigan late Thursday into Friday morning with a round of rain possible Thursday night along/south of highway M-55. By Friday, while any rain across our southern counties will end, cooler temperatures arrive with highs in the mid-50's to around 60F.
The weekend will be chilly for mid-May with a secondary and stronger cold front Saturday sweeping in a few clouds along with showers to kick off the weekend. Highs Saturday will remain mired in the low/mid-50's with the coolest day Sunday, highs will only be in the 40's.
This time of year though with our much higher sun angle, it is harder for that cold air to stick around, as will be the case this time. Highs Monday will be back into the 50's with 70's returning by the middle of next week.
