There's been plenty of sunshine to go around on Thursday for Mid-Michigan, but wherever your high temperatures ended up all depends on how close you are to the lakeshore.

A northeasterly breeze has factored into our Thursday significantly. Many places along the immediate lakeshore stayed below the 50 degree mark this afternoon, while temperatures gradually warmed farther inland. Areas along the I-69 corridor and closer to US-127 saw temperatures climb into the middle 70s.
That persistent northeasterly breeze has led to the issuance of Lakeshore Flood Advisories for Bay, Huron and Sanilac counties. These advisories indicate that onshore winds will generate high waves and high water levels, which could lead to beach erosion and flooding, along with damage to property such as docks and boat lifts. Expect frequent waves from 4-6 feet with some waves topping 8 feet.
Skies will remain clear this evening, with just a few passing clouds through the overnight period. The cooler temperatures during the day today and clear skies mean that our temperatures will have no trouble falling into the 40s by Friday morning. Winds will ease a bit overnight, staying northeast around 5-15 mph.
Add just a couple scattered high clouds into the mix, and Friday's forecast shapes up much like it did today. An east-northeast breeze 10-20 mph will once again keep temperatures cooler near the lakeshore, but high temperatures will be a few degrees warmer tomorrow than they were today.
Expect high temperatures in the lower 70s along the I-69 corridor and near US-127, ranging through the middle 60s around the Tri-Cities and the central Thumb area, and generally cooler in the upper 50s by the immediate lakeshore.
