Quick rounds of rain before sunny weather returns
Sun, 15 Jun 2014 19:39:03 GMT —
Northern Michigan will see a round of scattered showers and storms before sunshine returns to start the workweek.
Low pressure over northern Minnesota will lift into Canada late Sunday night, bringing a cold front over Lake Michigan. Out ahead of the weak front, we'll see cloud cover increase throughout the evening and some rain showers move in from the west. As this system moves northeast, scattered showers and storms will move across the state heading overnight into Monday.
Overnight low temps will stay in the 50s and 60s.
Rain is much needed - we have elevated fire danger right now thanks to low humidity, warm temps, and dry conditions, along with breezy conditions. Some of us could be picking up anywhere from a good quarter inch to one inch of rainfall by Tuesday evening (lesser amounts in the E. U.P., higher amounts near M-68 and south).
Be prepared to give yourself some extra time Monday morning as we may have some fog forming. The cold front is so weak that it won't even do much to our temperatures - Monday will be sunny with highs in the 70s and 80s with SW winds at 5-15mph.
Scattered showers and storms return Monday night and throughout the day Tuesday.
As a front becomes stationary through the Great Lakes region, we'll see a mix of sun and clouds with chances of rain/storms throughout the rest of the week - especially for the southern counties.
