Still Some Summer Weather Left in the Tank

As the first full week of September begins along with Labor Day Weekend winding down, summer-like temperatures continue to be in the forecast. High temperatures are expected to be in the 70s and 80s this week and next weekend. Overnight lows are forecast to be in the 50s most nights, so comfortable sleeping weather. In my opinion, this is perfect for keeping both the air conditioner and the furnace off.

For Labor Day today, it is a bit on the cooler and drearier side, with Mostly Cloudy skies and a high only near 74°. To begin the short work week tomorrow, we’ll bump it up to about 78° with a little more sun, but still a good amount of stubborn cloud cover. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are when we bring in Mostly Sunny skies and heat up into the low to mid-80s. While most of the week sees quiet and uneventful weather, the next cold front we will need to watch comes Friday night or Saturday. Friday may be breezy, allowing temperatures to warm into the mid to upper-80s. The cold front will cool us back into the 70s for highs Saturday and Sunday. As for rainfall potential, the chance is low; around 20-30% at this time, because moisture appears to be limited and cut off from the Gulf of Mexico. We’ll need to watch trends on this considering it is 4-5 days away, but right now, it doesn’t look impressive. There is, no doubt, a cold front that will cool down temperatures, but rainfall amounts look to be minimal. Saturday is the first home game for Central Michigan Football, so we will certainly need to keep a close eye on the exact cold front timing and any associated risk for rain as we get closer.

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 September 5th between 1991 and 2020 and calculate the average of all 30 values, the result would be 78. Therefore, the normal high for today is 78°. Record high and low temperature data goes back to 1895. Sunrise and sunset data is also provided. All information is valid for Mount Pleasant.
