Scattered showers and storms in the forecast through Wednesday

High pressure over the Great Lakes had given northern Michigan a great weekend, but changes are on the way to start the workweek.
We'll wake up Monday to some patchy fog, which will give way to a little sunshine. Enjoy it while it lasts - because a weak low pressure system will bring increasing cloud cover and scattered rain. We may also see a thunderstorm later at night. High temperatures Monday will remain around 70 degrees, and winds will be southerly at 5-15mph.
Another system will move in quickly, keeping the chance of rain in the forecast. Low pressure from the plains will push a warm front through later Tuesday as it moves into Wisconsin. This low pressure system looks to cross the central U.P. early Wednesday, and it's accompanying cold front will follow through Michigan during the day as the low pushes eastward into Canada.
This will cause warmer temperatures across Michigan both Tuesday and into Wednesday - low temps overnight Tuesday will be in the 60s for many. Along with warmer weather, expect a decent amount of clouds and scattered rain and thunderstorm chances to linger.
High pressure does move back in to end the week, and although there's a slight chance of rain Friday night, it otherwise looks dry. We'll see more sunshine during the day and most highs will be in the 70s for the L.P., upper 60s in the E. U.P.
