A cool Friday for northern Michigan

Northern Michigan will have a chilly end to the workweek.

A system from the plains will move toward the Great Lakes Friday, touching off clouds and showers, especially for the first part of the day. The higher rainfall totals will be on the Lake Michigan side and in Luce County, and we could be looking at a good quarter to almost one inch of rain by Friday night here. Closer to Lake Huron and for the easternmost parts of the Upper Peninsula totals look to be lower.

High temperatures Friday will be in the 60s for the majority of us, but some will break into the low 70s. Winds will be out of the SE at 5-20mph.

Heading into Friday afternoon the rain becomes more scattered, and diminishes overnight into Saturday.

The first day of summer will be warmer, with highs in the 70s to around 80. We'll see some sunshine, but also keep clouds around and the chance for an isolated shower.

We'll keep warmer weather and the chance for storms for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday before cooling down and drying out Wednesday.
