A low pressure system over Southern Minnesota brings in moist southerly air to the Upper Peninsula early Sunday, resulting in morning cloudiness and chances of sprinkles and patchy fog (especially in the interior). Drier air aloft will lead to gradual clearing in the late afternoon and evening.

An upper level high system kicks off the warming trend as soon as Monday in the U.P. with daytime highs in the 80s possible especially for inland areas.

The warming trend looks to last throughout the forecast period, though the associated southerly air flow will bring in abundant moisture originating from the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in rain chances during the second half of the week.
