Clouds slowly exit Friday with full sunshine beaming down to start our weekend

Courtesy: Teresa Conners/Crooked Lake A nice weekend is on tap if you have plans with sunshine back in the forecast for Saturday.

We head into our weekend with the weather improving after a couple of gray and damp days as sunshine is back in the forecast.

Low pressure crossed over Northern Michigan Thursday evening with much of Northern Michigan seeing close to an inch of rain. That will continue to move away from us with Friday a transition day between clouds/showers early on and eventually some late day sunshine trying to break through. So expect gray skies most of the day. There will be showers around through early to mid-afternoon (very spotty) with breaks in the clouds late day as drier air works in. It will be unseasonably cool with temperatures from 43-49F across the area.

Skies clear completely Friday night with 30's overnight setting up a fantastic weekend in terms of weather. Full sunshine expected Saturday with even clouds hard to find as temperatures will warm into the mid/upper-50's for most of Northern Michigan Saturday. The exception will be near the Great Lakes where it will be a little cooler.

Quiet weather carries over into Sunday. The only issue Sunday is a cold front that will drop in from the north during the day. This front will be moisture starved with very little to work with. That being said, I believe there will be a little increase in clouds north of the Mackinac Bridge along with small chance Sunday for a shower (mainly north of M-28) in the Eastern U.P.
