Spring like temperatures holding firm this week

Clouds will hang around Monday but temperatures will still climb close to 50F.

A large part of the Eastern U.S. will end up soggy over the next couple of days, but it appears Northern Michigan will miss out on most of the rain with spring-like temperatures in the forecast.

A broad storm system that has brought severe thunderstorms to the Deep South will lift northwards dragging a large area of rain towards the Eastern Great Lakes and the Northeast. This particular storm will miss Northern Michigan to our southeast although Southern Michigan including Detroit will see some rain Monday evening.

For Northern Michigan, Monday will be a decent day although there will be clouds around at times, but even with that being the case, temperatures Monday should shoot up close to 50F.

Looking ahead to the rest of this week, the approach of a cold front Thursday will bring in a round of rain then although it does not appear as if too much will fall. Highs will remain close to normal this week with 40's Tuesday/Wednesday and 50's Thursday through Sunday. While it's a ways off, the weekend looks mild with even the chance for a few early spring thunderstorms Saturday.
