Near Normal Temps and Mostly Dry This Week

Monday Through Wednesday:

The only chance of rain expected for the first half of the week will be Monday as the low that brought rain to parts of Lower Michigan over the weekend. Showers will be scattered so most people will be dry. Mostly sunny skies expected for Tuesday into Wednesday as high pressure moves into the Great Lakes with light winds out of the north and northwest expected. When you combine the dry weather with low humidity and light winds, it will be perfect weather for evening cookouts or bonfires Tuesday and Wednesday. Make sure you get out and enjoy it!

With normal highs around 80 this time of year, temperatures will be near to slightly above normal across Central Michigan. Temps will be around 78 on Monday and 81 on Tuesday, warming up to be around 85 by Wednesday. Lows will stay in the low sixties which is just a few degrees above normal for late August. All in all, once we get past the last of the rain showers Monday it looks to be a nice start to the week!

Thursday Through Sunday:

Our next chance of rain across Mid-Michigan is Thursday afternoon and evening as a cold front moves south through the area; bringing a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly cloudy skies are expected Thursday and continuing into Friday. Mostly sunny weather expected Saturday as high pressure moves through the Great Lakes. Dry weather continues into Sunday, with cloud cover becoming partly cloudy as the high moves off to the east.

We remain near normal for our temperatures with a high of 81 on Thursday. We cool a few degrees with slightly below normal highs in the mid-to-upper seventies Friday and Saturday behind the cold front. As winds switch to southwesterly Sunday we warm back up with highs around 83 in Central Michigan. Overnight lows continue to stay around sixty degrees through the rest of the week and into the weekend.

With dry weather and near to slightly below normal temperatures, it looks like a beautiful move-in weekend for Central Michigan University. We look forward to seeing the CMU community at mainstage on Sunday, with nice weather providing an enjoyable experience as we start off the next school year. Fire up chips!

Mt. Pleasant Almanac for This Week:

Almanac Information is a way to look at normal and record high and low temperatures for this time of year. The normal temperatures are based on the 30-year average high and low for that date between 1991 and 2020. For example, if you take the high temperature for every August 15th between 1991 and 2020 and calculate the average of all 30 values, the result would be 82°. Therefore, the normal high for today is 82°. Record high and low temperature data goes back to 1895. Sunrise and sunset data is also provided. All information is valid for Mount Pleasant.
