Warmth continues to build this week
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 14:04:26 GMT —
Following a couple of cool weeks, summer warmth has returned to Northern Michigan.
We are coming off an almost perfect weekend in the weather department with comfortable readings along with an abundance of sunshine thanks in part to high pressure and a southwest turn in our wind direction. Very warm air that has been sitting over the desert southwest/Rocky Mountain states the past few weeks has finally got a shove in our direction helping to warm things up.
Temperatures will peak for the time being Tuesday/Wednesday with both days seeing highs in the 80's with a few spots getting close to the 90F mark.
A weak cold front will drop in late Wednesday which will bring the best chance for a few thunderstorms later Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night. Many parts of Northern Michigan could stand to see some rain as a few areas have not had any for a couple of weeks. As a result, there is elevated fire danger with many counties not issuing burning permits until we do get some rain.
