A soggy end to April although sun and warmer temps next week

A stubborn area of low pressure will continue to bring rounds of showers and a rumble of thunder or two at least through Saturday before things finally dry out late in the weekend.
So far it has been a wet week and that looks to continue through at least Saturday as we enter the month of May. All of this is tied to a slow moving yet weakening low pressure system that will move from Southern Wisconsin Wednesday and sit right over Northern Michigan Thursday before dissipating and moving east. Showers will spiral around this system at times keeping rain in the forecast, although it will not rain the entire time and most rain will be on the lighter side through the beginning of the weekend. Totals across Northern Michigan will mainly range between 0.25-0.75".
Naturally, clouds will be pretty widespread which will keep temperatures below our normals of 57-60F. Most spots will sit around 50F or so through the end of the weekend.
By Sunday though, relief as the sun will break through with quiet weather early next week and a little warmup as well. Highs by next Tuesday return back to normal, approaching 60F.
