As we begin the work-week, cooler temperatures will be part of the main story across northern Michigan.

A cold front passed through the Great Lakes during the day yesterday, switching the winds from the S to the W-WNW. High temperatures today will range from the low 60s to low 70s, about 5-10 degrees cooler than normal for the second half of June. Outside of a spotty shower or two, things will stay dry this morning. Toward the afternoon, however, the shower activity will increase across all of northern Michigan. A couple thunderstorms are possible as well, mainly east of I-75. Coverage will begin to dissipate late in the evening, once the sun sets.

Monday night, a couple isolated showers are possible, but most should stay dry. Even though most stay dry, the skies will be mainly cloudy for everyone. Lows will range from the mid 40s to the mid 50s, cooler than what we've seen across northern Michigan in over a week.

For Tuesday, another cool and mainly cloudy day across northern Michigan. Showers will increase in coverage in the afternoon, with best chances the further south you are. High temperatures will stay in the 60s for most, with a few low 70s in the northern Lower inland communities.

Dry and fair weather returns to the area on Wednesday, as mostly sunny skies look to rule. Temperatures will begin to rebound towards normal, ranging from the upper 60s to mid 70s. The quiet weather will be short-lived, however, as rain chances return on Thursday.
