The frontal system that produced episodes of heavy rain especially in the Western U.P. Friday morning has pushed east of the region, resulting in west-to-east clearing overnight. Building high pressure drives a strong NW wind to the U.P. as speed gusts exceed 25 mph at times. Light breezes persist Saturday morning and under mostly clear skies, lows can dip from the upper 30s to lower 50s (coldest interior).

High pressure breaks down Monday as a Northern Plains-based system brings widespread rain chances over the U.P. Monday night through Tuesday.

Following the system’s exit Wednesday, a cold airmass builds over the U.P. and brings the chance of Lake Superior-effect rain to mainly the north wind belts.
