Some sunshine & warmer weather to return to northern Michigan

A break from the lake effect showers and warmer weather is headed for northern Michigan.

Lake effect showers will come to an end early Sunday, but a cold front will bring more scattered rain and wintry mix to the area starting around lunchtime. The further south you are the more likely you are to stay dry and see more sunshine. Winds will be westerly at 5-15mph, but there may be gusts - especially near the lakeshores - around 30mph.

Scattered rain and wintry mix will continue into the late night Sunday, but most will wake up to just clouds Monday morning.

We will see some sunshine Monday thanks to high pressure moving in, and the afternoon will bring highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s. Winds will be a bit breezy still, out of the NE at 10-20mph, with gusts still up to 30mph.

Tuesday and Wednesday will bring more sunshine, and most will stay dry. We will keep just a slight chance for rain, mainly for the southern counties,both days.

The end of the workweek brings us our next system, which will bring the return of rain (and possibly a storm) but much warmer temperatures! Highs will be in the low 50s for the E. U.P. and mainly the mid and upper 50s for the L.P. We've been watching this system for about a week, and it looks to make Halloween pretty cloudy and rainy. Thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon and evening - so if you're headed out trick-or-treating, the weather will be something to keep an eye on!
