Thunderstorms set to return as temperatures warm

The weather across Northern Michigan will become a lot more active this week with warmer and more humid conditions on the way.
High pressure set up great conditions this past weekend for outdoor activities with sunny skies and cool/frosty nights. However, high pressure will get pushed out of the area with a warm front set to sweep in bringing back the rain and thunderstorms.
As of Memorial Day morning, the warm front that will influence our weather this week was draped across Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana bringing heavy rain and storms to those regions for Memorial Day. That front will get a kick northward Monday night clouding up the skies over Northern Michigan with showers and thunderstorms becoming more numerous by late Tuesday morning.
During the day Tuesday, this frontal boundary will act as a trigger for occasional thunderstorms. By early Wednesday, that front will lift north into Canada allowing warmer weather to settle in. High temperatures Wednesday through Friday will shoot up into the 80's over much of Northern Michigan. We will keep the risk for a stray thunderstorm in the forecast Wednesday/Thursday.
By later Friday, a cold front will sweep in setting up another round of storms late in the week into part of Saturday. Temperatures cool into the 60's again late next weekend.
