Slightly cooler Thursday, but sunny skies continue

Temperatures will be a tad cooler on Thursday, with plenty of sunshine expected. Rain returns to the forecast on Sunday.

Another gorgeous October day on tap, with plenty of sunshine once again! A moisture starved cold front passed the Great Lakes earlier this morning, which will only influence our temperatures Thursday. High temperatures will range from the upper 50s in the Upper Peninsula, to the low-mid 60s in the Lower. Winds will gradually turn lighter as well, out of the west between 10-20 mph, becoming 5-10 mph towards the evening.

Thursday night, clear but chilly for some - especially in the typical cool, inland areas. Upper 30s to lower 40s for those farther inland, with lows in upper 40s-lower 50s near the lake shores.

High pressure noses into northern Michigan Friday, allowing for another gorgeous day with plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will warm up once again - mid to upper 60s north of the Straits, low-middle 70s southward. Winds will be picking up as well, out of the southwest between 10-20 mph, gusts upwards of 25 mph.

Saturday will be similar, with warm temperatures and gusty conditions. Clouds will be on the increase, out ahead of an approaching cold front. Rain returns to the forecast late Saturday night and into Sunday, as the cold front works through the area.

Looking ahead to next week, more seasonable temperatures for the latter part of October returns - low to middle 50s.
