The feature image today shows the frost and freeze warnings (Dark Blue) and advisories (light Blue) across the northern plains. Temperatures in North Dakota are in the upper twenties this morning and expected to drop back into the twenties again tonight. Northern Wisconsin is expected to drop into the 20s tonight with the southern areas into the low to mid 30s. We have a cloud shield in place and lake Michigan to the west to keep our temperatures well above freezing though we will be cool today and tonight in SW Michigan.
The areas in pink have a red flag warning for low humidity and windy conditions which creates fire hazards. The gray areas are for a dense fog advisory for this morning. The blue in Montana are snow advisories in the mountains for one to six inches of snow. We don’t have what I consider real mountains in Michigan though we do have Mount Arvon in the U.P. at 1979 feet in elevation which is Michigan’s highest point. A mountain is designated as a large landform that rises above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill.
We have a beach hazards statement in place for lake Michigan beaches through tomorrow morning though I don’t think many will want to go swimming or hanging out at the beach in shorts with temperatures struggling to get to 60° today as a cold front moves through. We will see mainly light rain today and tonight and maybe a rumble of thunder mixed in.
Some frost is possible in the central northern areas Saturday night and Sunday morning. Saturday looks to be the best day for working outside with sunny conditions though it will remain cool. A warm front will lift into the area Saturday night into Sunday giving us another chance of rain. We are still seeing temps rising into the upper 70s to near 80 next week.
