Friday offered up some much-needed relief from this week's high heat and humidity, and we even caught a break from the afternoon pop-up storms. For the most part, that trend looks to continue this weekend!


Skies will remain generally clear overnight as a pocket of high pressure remains parked over Lake Huron. The lack of clouds and drier air will allow temperatures to take a cooler dip to the upper 50s and low 60s by morning. The only caveat may come in for form of some isolated fog thanks to little in the way of wind.

The Weekend

A small disturbance will duck south from the U.P. on Saturday, tossing some scattered clouds into our skies. We'll still see plenty of sun between those clouds, but we'll also need to be on the lookout for some pop-up storms in the afternoon. Any storms that develop will be very isolated and brief, so don't expect any difficulties for your outdoor plans, even if you catch a quick downpour. Highs Saturday in the low and middle 80s.

Partly cloudy skies will continue on Saturday night with any leftover storms coming to a quick end during the evening. Temps will again take a dive into the low 60s, and we'll likely encounter some patchy fog late. Even so, viewing conditions will be very good for the peak of the Perseid meteor shower!

Sunday lives up to its namesake as high pressure resumes control of the Great Lakes region. Mostly sunny skies will carry us through the second half of the weekend, with highs in the low to mid 80s once again.

Chances for thunderstorms will return as we head into next week. Take a look ahead in the First Warn 5 7-Day Forecast!
