A dry start to June but some rain returns Wednesday

Spring started wet as seen in this field. Recently, things have dried out with Northern Michigan running below normal in rain so far in June.

We will see another dry day Tuesday before a little rain approaches Wednesday.

We could certainly use a little rain. After a wet start to spring, things have dried out rather quickly with all of our main climate sites across Northern Michigan running well below normal so far in the month of June.

A weakening area of low pressure sitting over Missouri Tuesday morning will lift northward towards Michigan. While we do not expect any rain Tuesday, we certainly will see an increase in clouds arriving from the south. So there will not be nearly as much sunshine as what we embraced Monday.

Some rain will finally get into parts of Northern Michigan Wednesday morning, but even with that being the case, this system will be decaying over us with only light showers at times. The atmosphere will remain pretty stable so even thunder will be hard to come by. Since this system is moving in from the south, it will generally be parts of the Lower Peninsula that see showers although I suppose a few could also pop in the Eastern U.P. Showers will wind down Wednesday night with a cold front quickly on its heels Thursday. It looks like a line of showers will cross later Thursday along a cold front with highs by Friday struggling to get into the low/mid-60's as come cooler air spills in.
