Water temperatures have taken a dip – so you might not want to take a dip…just 49° this AM at Holland St. Park, the Port Sheldon and the Ludington buoys were also showing a 49° water temperature. Hoffmaster S.P. had 53°. The models are backing off the heat for early next week through Tuesday…the GFS has thunderstorms along I-94 on Saturday midday/PM – waiting on the European – will update on the news tonight.
