A Canadian Prairies frontal system brings initial rain to the Upper Peninsula, spreading eastward overnight.

The frontal system is the leading edge of a cold airmass that will keep temperatures below the seasonal in the U.P. during the first half of the week. Rain will transition to mainly widespread snow on Monday. Snow shower chances continue for the NW wind belts Tuesday and Wednesday.

High pressure then builds over the region during the second half of the week, with temperatures trending at or above the seasonal norm.

The next chance for precipitation is expected next weekend with the arrival of another Canadian Prairies frontal system.
