SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - Expect brighter conditions and slightly warmer temperatures temperatures today even with clouds still hanging around. All-in-all, it will be very comfortable so try to get outdoors and enjoy. An incoming warm front will bring even warmer temperatures for the latter parts of this week (take a look in your TV5 First Alert 7-Day Forecast!), but it also does bring along with it some light isolated showers. There’s no need to worry though, rain intensity and coverage will be light and highly isolated.


A cool start slowed down the warming for today. Even Houghton Lake fell to around 33 degrees. Temperatures will recover even with the afternoon clouds, then up to 70 degrees for our official afternoon high temperatures.
