      Warm, sunny, smoky this weekend

      Smoke from fires in western Canada is spreading into the U.S. Midwest including Michigan.



      Great looking weekend. And finally a warm weekend this summer. Daytime highs Saturday will be mostly 70s with a few low 80sâ?¦and Sunday even more highs in the 80s will show up on the map. Look for plenty of sunshine, but if you need rainâ?¦we wonâ??t see any until next week.



      Hereâ??s something a bit odd. Weâ??re get sunshine this weekend, but the sky will have a â??dirtyâ?? or â??milkyâ?? look to it. Thatâ??s smoke from numerous fires in western Canada. Upper level atmospheric wind is carrying some of that smoke thousands of miles into the U.S. Midwest. Itâ??s not a hazard, but it will rob us of the blue sky we would have seen this weekend.



      On Mondayâ?¦it will be in the 80sâ?¦humidâ?¦and partly sunny. There will be a chance for showers in the Upper Peninsula. On Tuesday and Wednesdayâ?¦we all have a chance for rain and thunderstorms.



      Wind will be light this weekendâ?¦5-15 mphâ?¦mostly from the south.
