Quick round of rain over weekend

The upcoming weekend in general will be pleasant, although there will be a quick round of rain as well.
High pressure has basically been parked across the western Great Lakes region all week long allowing for sun filled skies along with clear and crisp nights. That pattern will start to break down Saturday allowing a cold front to sweep in.
Both Friday along with Saturday will see lots of sunshine. If you have plans Saturday, no worries on any rain as it will hold off until well after dark. It will be after midnight Saturday night into the morning hours of Sunday that clouds arrive along with a round of rain. Most spots are forecasted to pick up a quick 0.30-0.70" of rain averaging out to about a half inch or so. The bulk of the rain will move east by Sunday afternoon with some partial clearing later Sunday. Highs Saturday top out in the 70's falling back into the 60's Sunday.
For the fall color enthusiasts, there is some color showing up in the interior of the west/central U.P. although even there peak color is still at least a week away. A little color is also showing in Northern Lower Michigan, with peak color still a couple of weeks off.
