Sun & rain with warmer temperatures for the week ahead
Sun, 04 May 2014 23:37:02 GMT —
Northern Michigan will see days with some sun and rain, but we will warm up for the week ahead.
As low pressure exits east and high pressure moves into the Great Lakes region, we'll see a lot of the cloud cover continue to break down Sunday evening.
As skies clear and our northwesterly wind becomes light for the early overnight hours, we have a good chance for frost to form - so remember to cover your plants or bring them indoors. Overnight lows Sunday will drop to around 30 degrees.
Cloud cover will build back in Monday morning, and although we'll see more sunshine towards lunch, we'll also bring in the chance for some pop-up showers throughout the afternoon and evening. Highs Monday will be in the 50s for most with northerly winds at 5-10mph.
High pressure clears our skies and gives us plenty of sun for Tuesday, with light winds and highs reaching the mid 50s to about 60 degrees.
Rain chances return Wednesday. Low pressure in the plains will push a warm front through the area, giving us highs in the 50s Wednesday and 60s & 70s for most Thursday (up 50s E. U.P.). With the warmer weather, however, we also keep scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in the forecast. Those rain and storm chances stay with us into Friday as low pressure and the cold front pass through.
