Effect of Lake Michigan felt this Far Inland

It's been an absolutely beautiful weekend!  Highs both Saturday and Sunday topped out in the low 80's, nearly 10 degrees above average!  Temperatures Sunday late afternoon, though, fell rather quickly over just a couple hours span.  This is because a lake breeze from Lake Michigan was pushed this far inland.

Saturday night a cool front came down the lake, but was pulled back north Sunday afternoon.  As it usually is this time of year the warmth didn't quite make it to the lake shores.  As a result, a lake breeze developed.  And a pretty strong lake breeze at that.  Winds have shifted around to the east and will remain from the east through the night.

By Monday afternoon, temperatures will once again be nearing 80 degrees with a developing warm front.  With the passage of the warm front, there is a chance for thunderstorm development late Monday afternoon and evening.
