No break from spring early this week as temperatures warm

The longer spring days are slowly taking their toll on the extensive snowpack across Northern Michigan.

While some folks depart Northern Michigan for warmer climes, those remaining behind are in store for some of the warmest temperatures since last fall.

A warm front will blow through Northern Michigan early Monday setting the stage for many areas to reach into the 50's with an outside 60F reading possible.

In the meantime, we are looking at a very pleasant day Sunday to close out our weekend. Winds will turn southerly Sunday afternoon and with ample sunshine forecasted, temperatures will climb out of the teens early in the morning into the 40's just about across the board for everyone in Northern Michigan.

Monday will be even warmer as a warm front passes, temperatures will climb. Most locations in the Lower Peninsula should top out in the 50's with a 60F reading possible in the warmest locations. The Eastern U.P./Straits region will be cooler with 40's expected there. Skies will end up partly/mostly cloudy with dry weather hanging on.

Skies cloud over late Monday and as the next area of low pressure approaches, rain showers will break out Monday night possible switching to a mix of rain/snow Tuesday. It could be worse, parts of Northeastern Minnesota which will be affected by the same storm system Monday into Tuesday will remain in the colder sector of this storm with up to a foot of snow possible there.
