We will get a "brief" break from the clouds/showers through late Thursday but they will be back in the forecast later Friday through the weekend.
Low pressure which had shrouded Northern Michigan under clouds and widespread showers/unseasonably cool weather will drop south of the area heading into Ohio Wednesday and should be far enough away to take the clouds/showers along with it.
A few showers remain possible through midday Wednesday but with time, things will start to dry out. The extensive cloudiness will also start to break up (in particular north/east counties) Wednesday afternoon with sunshine poking through. Temperatures will also make a marked rebound with mid/upper-60's in the forecast Wednesday afternoon (this following the 50's Tuesday). An outside shot at a rain shower Wednesday evening along/south of highway M-55, but skies will trend partly to mainly clear overnight. Almost all spots will end up dry for the first time this week Thursday. Low pressure will continue to spin away over Ohio, and while rain is likely across Southern Michigan, we will be far enough north for some sunshine/dry weather.
This very same system will continue to impact our weather Friday into the upcoming weekend. Low pressure over Ohio will get nudged northward back toward Michigan with rain redeveloping across our region Friday (Lower Michigan) and into the weekend for the entire area. Archery deer season opens up Saturday and for the hunters, it will not rain all weekend, but showers are an almost certainty along with what should be some gusty winds out of the east.
This system finally departs for good Monday with some drier/quieter weather following suit Monday into Tuesday of next week. Temperatures will mainly be in the 60's this week with a few low-70's on Thursday.
