Afternoon showers and storms may pop Tuesday

Dense fog greeted parts of Northern Michigan Tuesday morning.

No surprise this time of year, but dense fog greeted some of us Tuesday morning and may do so again Wednesday/Thursday mornings.

Cooler temperatures along with some partial clearing led to thick fog in places like Mackinaw City and Cheboygan along with Cadillac and Ludington Tuesday morning where visibility at times was reduced to less than an eighth of a mile. That fog did lift once the sun came out setting up a decent Tuesday afternoon over Northern Michigan.

I am going to pencil in a few widely scattered showers/thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon/evening. A weak cold front crossing Lake Superior along with lake breezes and some afternoon heating should be enough to touch off a few showers and storms over the Eastern U.P.after 2 p.m. Tuesday which may survive long enough to drift into Northern Lower Michigan in the evening hours. Any rain will be brief, but there is that possibility. Once the sun goes down, any lingering showers will come to quick demise.

The rest of the week looks pleasant with sun intermingled with a few clouds and comfortable temperatures in the 70's. The primary storm track will shift across the Southern Great Lakes including Southern Michigan Wednesday with severe weather possible there.
