A dry June giving way to some rain

A dry start to June will give way to some rain Wednesday and perhaps again Thursday evening along a cold front.

A bit of much needed rain is rolling across parts of Northern Michigan Wednesday, although not everyone is going to see it.

A weakening area of low pressure is rolling across the state today leading to some rain, which should be a welcome sign for some. Pretty much all of Northern Michigan is running a rain deficit since the start of the month. We will not see a major soaking with most of the rain falling along/south of highway M-68. In fact, a few places in the Eastern U.P. may miss out on the rain completely Wednesday.

Thursday will start cloudy, but for awhile the skies will clear with some afternoon sunshine expected. This will all happen ahead of an approaching cold front that will be racing towards us. Temperatures on southwest winds will climb into the 70's Thursday. The aforementioned cold front will cross Northern Michigan in the 5-9 p.m. timeframe Thursday evening and may trigger a few thunderstorms Thursday evening.

Friday will feel more like October than June. Cool air will spill in with a lot of clouds and even showers at times with temperatures only around 60F or so. It's only for a short time though with temperatures back into the 70's for the weekend.
