Storms will pop up south of M-72 Tuesday

While a few thunderstorms will develop Tuesday south of highway M-72, we won't see any more until at earliest next Sunday.

It seems we have finally flipped the switch on a much more spring like forecast as high temperatures for the foreseeable future will remain in the 70's.

Overall the Memorial Day Weekend was fantastic with only a few showers on Memorial Day itself.

The weather story Tuesday is a weak cold front that is dropping through Northern Michigan Tuesday. Ahead of this boundary, it is warm and kind of muggy. There is a chance for a few showers or isolated thunderstorms to bubble up, but not for everyone. It appears the dividing line is going to be highway M-72 with dry weather hanging on north of there all day. So if you are in places like Sault Ste. Marie, Cheboygan, Gaylord or Alpena dry weather will hang on all day. South of M-72 a different story as this cold front will be arriving during peak afternoon heating setting up scattered to numerous showers and some thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon in places like Houghton Lake, Clare, Big Rapids, and Cadillac. No severe weather is forecasted, but weak winds aloft will keep storm movement on the slow side so heavy downpours are certainly possible.

These showers and thunderstorms will dwindle Tuesday evening and exit the region.

That will be it for rain. In fact, high pressure will take firm control over our weather and we will not see another drop until at the very earliest Sunday and any rain chances may well hold off until next Monday. Highs will be in the 70's with a few 80's even possible.
