Overcast skies assemble along with some rain

Temperatures Monday morning were chilly, with Grayling dipping down to 39F. The coldest spot we could find Monday morning was Leota in Clare County where it dropped to 38F early Monday.
Clear skies along with little if any wind allowed for the mercury to drop quickly.
Changes are looming though as a warm front will lift northward later Monday into Tuesday. That boundary has already led to soaking rains in Minnesota/Wisconsin Monday morning. Skies across Northern Michigan will quickly cloud over Monday. We still have a relatively dry airmass in place, so any rain that attempts to work in from the west will have to saturate the atmosphere some before any of it will fall. Still, a little light rain is possible starting late Monday afternoon across parts of Northern Michigan through Monday night.
Much of Tuesday looks dry with no triggers for any showers or thunderstorms although a stray shower can't be ruled out.
A cold front will sweep into the region late Tuesday night/Wednesday bringing with it a broken line of showers/thunderstorms at that time. Skies clear out once again Wednesday afternoon.
It continues to remain on the cooler side of things with no signals of any warmth returning any time soon. Daytime high temperatures through next weekend remain in the low/mid-70's.
