Soggy and foggy Sunday with periods of moderate rainfall
Half-inch to an inch of rainfall possible in some U.P. locations
A Midwestern low pressure system over Northern Illinois and Indiana brings widespread rain northward to the Upper Peninsula, with moderate to possibly brief heavy episodes of rainfall during the Sunday morning hours as the low continues a northeastward track towards the Great Lakes region. The saturated air also brings the potential for dense patchy fog in the U.P. Sunday morning, with road visibility reduced to 1/2-mile or less at times. Expecting the dense fog hazard to diminish into midday as gusty winds over 20 mph can mix out the foggy patches.
A series of Canadian Prairies-based systems look to bring more rain to Upper Michigan during the first half of next week. The temperature trend overall looks to hold in the average range or just above normal for the next seven days due to a lack of northern cold polar systems pushing into the region.
