COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Some are calling it the July Polar Vortex with predicted highs tomorrow and Wednesday in Branch County ten to 15 degrees below normal and even cooler elsewhere in Michigan and the upper Midwest. A dip in the jet stream is expected to expose the region and spreading to the East Coast the sub-normal readings.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Nathan Jeruzal says it may be a little fall like tonight, but there is no need to drag out the long johns and the gloves. He says it really isn’t even the Polar Vortex, which stays way, way up north. This is just a wave coming down from Canada. The first wave will sweep through Michigan tonight with a few lingering rain showers, and we will be back into the 80’s by the weekend.
By the way, the record low reading for tomorrow morning is 43 degrees, set on June 15th, 1930.
