Clouds have continued to build in this afternoon and evening as a cold front is dropping in from the north bringing scattered showers to areas. The cold front will move out by tonight taking the showers with it but behind the front, there will be enough cold air moving in to support the development of lake effect rain showers. Winds will be out of the NW tonight meaning the most likely areas to see a few lake effect showers will be around the Grand Traverse Bay region and across the U.P..
Lake effect showers will continue for spots through Monday night before the taper off for Tuesday. Tuesday will be the dry day of the week ahead of us. A bigger system will move in Wednesday that will bring more significant rainfall to the area as well as maybe a few little snowflakes mixing in for highland areas and the U.P.. This all depends on the timing of the system on whether or not temperature will support frozen precipitation in spots. Right now the system Fro Wednesday will move in later in the day through Thursday afternoon. The overnight/Thursday morning is when perhaps a little of the white stuff will mix in for certain spots.
Temperatures will remain fairly seasonable this week in the upper 40s to mid 50s for daytime highs.
