Building high pressure from the Canadian Prairies brings drier, cooler air to the U.P. to start the week. Its associated northwesterly flow does bring a light-to-moderate concentration of smoke particles from active wildfires in Manitoba and Minnesota -- EGLE’s latest Air Quality Index information still reported ‘good’ (keep updated here).

The high pressure eventually breaks down towards the second half of the week, as a series of upstream systems produce rain showers over Upper Michigan towards the weekend.
