Lows will fall into the lower 40s tonight, and although some isolated readings in the 30s are possible, it generally will not be as cold as the last two nights. The wind will be light from the northeast overnight at 5 mph.

Weekend Outlook

The remnant clouds of Ian may continue to move in from the southeast, but it’ll still only be the clouds. Otherwise, central Michigan and up north will see plenty of sun. Likely even the Tri-Cities will see more sun than clouds Saturday. Partly to mostly sunny skies are also still expected Sunday too.

Archery deer season opens up Saturday morning, anyone looking to go out hunting will also have perfect weather for the morning hunt (sunrise is 7:33 AM)! Could have some patchy fog to deal with at worst.

Highs Saturday will reach the middle 60s, a northeast wind will keep the shoreline a handful of degrees cooler. That wind will be from 5-15 mph with gusts near 25 mph. Sunday will mostly be in the upper 50s with possibly a few locations touching 60 degrees. There will also be a northeast wind from 5-15 mph with gusts near 25 mph.

A weak cold front moves through Saturday night which will keep Sunday a handful of degrees cooler, but there will be no rain with this front.

The weekend has brighter skies with temperatures in the 60s!

Next Week

Monday and Tuesday should keep the dry stretch going with some more sunshine! Highs both days should manage a goof mix of some low to mid 60s.

Shower chances don’t return until the middle of next week. As of now, our best chance will land on Thursday.
