Record high temperatures recorded back in the late 1940's could be at risk this weekend as unusually warm air moves into the region. The previous records for Saturday and Sunday are near 32°C and forecast highs are very close to those numbers. The heat hangs on into early next week before cooler air returns more seasonable temperatures to the region.
Friday will be mostly sunny with a light west wind. Most of the region will see daytime highs near 28°C except those again along the shores of Superior, who will see slightly cooler conditions.
There is the slight risk of an isolated shower near St. Joseph Island around sunset. More widespread showers move in after midnight for the rest of the region.
Saturday starts out with the risk of an early morning shower, but skies will become partly as the mercury climbs to near 28°C, just shy of the 31.1°C record high.
Hot weather moves in for Sunday with daytime highs near 30°C under sunny skies and light variable winds. The record high for Sunday is 31.7°C, set in 1947.
