Small rain chance Wednesday, more late in the week

Courtesy: Reneta Gauthier/Topinabee Some sunshine again Wednesday although a few spots may see a brief afternoon shower and/or thunderstorm.

For most on Wednesday, another dry and quiet day as the mid-point of the week arrives. A frontal boundary continues to be stalled out across the Upper Peninsula, which combined with the peak heating of the day, will try to spark a couple showers/rumble of thunder in the afternoon and evening hours. This rain chance will be isolated, and confined mainly to parts of NE Lower and areas north of the Straits. Otherwise, a mostly sunny day for majority of the viewing area with temperatures ranging from the low 70s in the U.P., to the mid 70s-low 80s in the Lower Peninsula.

Wednesday night, partly to mostly cloudy skies will be the general rule. An isolated shower is possible, but almost all will stay on the dry side. Lows will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

On Thursday, shower and thunder chances increase, especially towards the second half of the day as the approaching low pressure system tracks closer to northern Michigan. Clouds coverage will be on the increase as well, but temperatures will still be in the 70s to near the 80 degree mark.

More rain and thunder chances continue Thursday night and into Friday, as low pressure moves through the region. Things begin to dry out late Friday night and into the weekend.
