Quiet weather heading into the weekend
Fri, 18 Apr 2014 23:15:35 GMT —
Northern Michigan will see a quiet end to the workweek and to start the weekend, before rain moves in.
High pressure will make its way across Lake Superior and through Canada Friday night and Saturday. This will keep skies partly cloudy to mostly clear Friday night - allowing low temperatures to fall into the teens and twenties with a light wind. We will see some fog form, so keep that in mind if you're headed out Friday night or Saturday morning.
Saturday will bring sunshine for most of the L.P., but the further north you are the more cloud cover and better chances for rain you'll have. Winds will be out of the southeast at about 5-10mph. Highs for the northernmost counties will stay in the forties, while we're up in the mid fifties closer to the Central Lower.
Rain chances increase in the late night with our next system, and the E. U.P. will be first to hear rain on the roof. Scattered showers will then stay in the forecast throughout the day Sunday - not an all-day rain event, but passing showers throughout the day. Highs Sunday will be mainly in the fifties, but range from the upper forties to low sixties. Scattered rain takes us into Monday before we see the return of sunshine mid-week.
