Rest of Holiday Weekend Looking Sharp!
*Very Tropical Saturday P.M. with heat indices over 100 in a few spots. Alma topped out at 100 degrees, Mt. Pleasant reached 109 degrees. And Sanford, in Midland County basted with a heat index of 114 degrees at 1:30p.m. Everyone will see much less humid conditions today with cooler temps as well!* *High pressure builds into the region next couple of days giving us perhaps picture perfect weather to wrap up the Holiday Weekend!* *Next chance for (some needed) rainfall will be Tuesday* *Rest of week looks dry* —————– Sunny skies are on tap for your Sunday with highs in the middle to upper 70's north and upper 70's to lower 80's south. Winds very tolerable W/NW 5-15mph but a bit gustier near the Great Lakes. Sunday night is looking good for any fireworks. Lows in the upper 40's and into the 50's with light winds. Monday is looking mostly sunny with highs in the upper 70's to lower 80's north and lower to middle 80's south. Winds W 5-12mph. Monday night is also looking good for any fireworks. The clouds will increase Tuesday with a chance for a few showers and storms . Highs will be in the middle to upper 70's north and well into upper 70's to middle 80's south. Winds SW/S 10-18mph. Wednesday will have high pressure moving in giving us mostly sunny conditions. Highs will be only a few degrees cooler than Tuesday. More sunshine is in the picture for Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the middle to upper 70's north to lower 80's south. So it looks like the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City could perhaps some of the best weather ever with the exception of that shower and storm threat Tuesday afternoon and evening. -Meteorologist Jim Lehocky
