An active southern stream will mean stormy, unsettled weather to our south. On the other hand, Upper Michigan will remain in the northern branch which will mean a continuation of dry, seasonable weather.
High pressure remains locked in up to our north in Canada. At the same time, low pressure systems keep working out of the Rockies eastward into the Plains. Once they encounter the southern end of the high pressure ridge near the Great Lakes these systems weaken. This pattern should continue through the weekend.
Look for a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday with highs ranging from the 40s along Lake Superior to the 50s well inland. Some interior west-central locations like Iron Mountain may touch the 60-degree mark.
On Saturday night, clear skies and light winds will lead to a chilly night with lows mainly in the 30s.
Little overall change is expected for Sunday as high pressure remains locked in to the north up in Canada. This system will send dry air into the U.P. which means more sunshine and seasonable temperatures for the beginning of May.
