It was feast or famine with regard to rain this past weekend as some spots saw just a few drops while others picked up close to 2.5". Dry/pleasant weather on tap to start our week with a few storms on the way in Wednesday.
Low pressure swirled across the region this past weekend with the heaviest of the rain falling along the Chippewa/Mackinac county line where up to two inches of rain came down over the weekend.
That system is spiraling east of the area with rapid clearing setting up Monday across Northern Michigan on a northerly breeze. Expect any cloudiness early in the day to give ground to sunshine for the afternoon. Winds will remain somewhat brisk from the north with temperatures ranging from 70-77F with less of a humid feel in the air.
High pressure will work right over the heart of Northern Michigan Monday night into Tuesday leading to light wind and a cool/crisp night Monday night. Our coldest outlying locations will drop into the low/mid-40's.
Dry weather hang on into Tuesday along with milder temperatures as we will climb into the low-80's.
Really, the only chance for any rain will be this Wednesday as a cold front arrives. Our initial thoughts are that thunderstorms will work in during the day Wednesday. A few storms cloud be strong or possibly severe Wednesday afternoon/evening. We'll keep tabs on that as we get closer.
Thereafter, dry and pleasant weather quickly returns with sunshine comfortable weather Thursday afternoon right into next weekend.
