Not exactly 'beach' weather

The summer holiday season is getting off to a cool start this weekend.

There’s a chance of frost tonight in parts of Michigan.   And daytime temperatures will struggle to make it into the low 70’s the rest of the weekend. 

It may feel a little chilly for the first weekend of summer, but weather forecasters say more seasonable temperatures are coming.

But will this be a warmer or cooler summer?

Jeff Andresen is a state climatologist. He says Michigan’s average summer high temperatures range in the upper 70 to lower 80’s.

He says long-term forecasts are a little hazy about Michigan’s temperatures over the next few months.

“At least for the next couple of months…it is just in that no direction category," says Andresen.

Andresen says the forecast models suggest we should expect a little more rain than last summer.
