A soggy start to firearm deer season as rain rolls in across the north

Pat Tallman/Green Lake Near Interlochen

Skies cloud over later Tuesday with rain sweeping in Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

We expect a quiet day for the most part Tuesday but clouds will roll back in quickly Tuesday evening with rain breaking out overnight Tuesday right into Wednesday morning (the beginning of firearm deer season).

Most spots across Northern Michigan will remain dry/quiet Tuesday with a mix of sun/clouds expected on a southerly breeze. Temperatures Tuesday will range from 38-45F. There could be a few spotty showers over the Eastern U.P. in the afternoon hours.

Rain rolls in along a warm front Tuesday night. It will fall as rain (not snow) with overnight temperatures remaining quite a bit above the freezing mark. Temperatures overnight from 35-42F.

If you are heading out hunting Wednesday morning (or just into work) expect a soggy start to the day with rain at times. A general 0.25-0.75" of rain is forecasted overall. Steadier morning rain will give way to cloudy skies and a few lingering lake effect showers hanging on through Wednesday evening downwind of Lakes Superior/Michigan.

Dry quiet/Thursday with a partly sunny skies. Cooler with temperatures in the low/mid-30's.

Another area of disturbed weather will arrive Friday into the weekend. We expect mainly rain again Friday with a rain/snow mix Saturday. Colder air arriving Sunday (highs in the upper-20's/low-30's) will lead to passing lake effect snow showers to end the weekend.

Although still over a week out, a look around Thanksgiving shows fairly quiet weather with the possibility of a few scattered snow showers. No major storms on the horizon at this point around Thanksgiving.
