An upper level disturbance from the Canadian Prairies will produce light to occasionally moderate rainfall over the Upper Peninsula Sunday morning. The disturbance exits the region into midday, resulting in a brief period mostly sunny skies from west to east. By the afternoon, clouds increase ahead of an approaching Central Plains frontal system -- rain chances return, starting in the Western U.P. Sunday afternoon then spreading eastward throughout the evening.

The warm sector of this front closes in on the U.P. early Monday, producing widespread rain with moderate to locally heavy rainfall episodes possible. Conditions improve midweek with mostly sunny sky conditions as the frontal system exits the Great Lakes region -- cooler northerly air arrives in its wake.

Temperature trend dips below the seasonal average during the second half of the week in the Upper Peninsula, with the next rain chances to come Friday and Saturday.
