SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - We’re tracking another day with hot temperatures and more sunshine, although humidity levels will be more comfortable. We’ll also continue with the dry stretch and above average temperatures into the weekend. There’s only have one decent rain chance over the next seven days, it’s during this upcoming weekend.

Afternoon & Tonight

We’re expecting another hot day across the region as we have officially entered the season of summer! Sunny skies will take us throughout the daytime hours. No rain is expected for today. Highs will reach up to around 87, expect around 84 in the Thumb and 80-82 up north. Dew points behind a weak cold front will be dropping into the 50s. This will help decrease humidity values and make it feel more comfortable. Winds behind the front will be from the NW around 5 to 15 mph.

Highs on Wednesday will be cooler than Tuesday.

Weekend Outlook

We still have plenty of heat to go around for the weekend, especially on Saturday with temperatures still expected to reach into the low 90s.

There will be another system to keep an eye on later Saturday into Sunday that could produce a few showers along a passing cold front. A few rumbles of thunder can’t be ruled out. Despite this rain chance, the rest of the weekend outside of this timeframe is trending dry. This rain will surely be needed as we’ll add around 0.1″ to our rainfall deficit per day through the rest of the workweek.

Behind a cold front, highs Sunday will be held back a bit, but still staying warm near 80.
