Dry Father's Day before rain moves in

Father's Day across northern Michigan will be pleasant, with rain arriving in the evening.

High pressure over Michigan will keep Saturday evening and through almost all of Sunday nice. Overnight Saturday low temperatures will only drop to the mid 40s to around 50 degrees.

Sunday will bring sunshine, but warmer weather thanks to a warm front pushing north. Highs in the E. U.P. will be around 70, with the L.P. into the mid 70s to low 80s. It will be breezy, with southerly winds at 5-15mph and gusts up to 30mph. This will keep our fire danger elevated, so be sure to take all proper precautions if burning.

Throughout the day Sunday low pressure will come together in the plains and move into northern Minnesota. As we approach the late afternoon and early evening hours Sunday, rain will begin to fall as this low pressure system moves further northeast into Canada - its cold front coming along behind. Scattered showers will start on the Lake Michigan side and in the E. U.P. and move across to the east.

Most of the rain will fall during the overnight hours and into early Monday morning - and some of us could be picking up a much-needed quarter inch of rain or so.

By mid-day Monday, the cold front will have pushed through - and it's so weak, will die out completely. It won't do anything to our temperatures as afternoon highs will still be in the 70s and 80s, and we'll still have a day full of plenty of sun.
