Brief high pressure takes over the U.P. Monday allowing for sunny breaks to fill the skies throughout the day. A solid westerly wind pattern keeps Lake Superior-effect rain and snow chances alive in the west wind belts of the Copper Country and even eastward from Grand Island out to Whitefish Point. A moisture-filled frontal system approaches from eastern Montana with the chances for rain and snow expected to reach the western half of the U.P. by Tuesday evening and then spread eastward. Temperature trends look to hold below seasonal for the week as a semi-permanent low pressure system holds over the northern portions of Ontario and Quebec.
