The high pressure providing the mild and benign weather in the Upper Peninsula the last several days exits the region Thursday, as a low pressure system from the central Mississippi Valley migrates northward toward the region, bringing rain to the Southern U.P. Thursday evening then northward into Friday morning. Isolated thunderstorms are possible, especially during the heat of the day Friday afternoon. Rain chances continue Saturday, diminishing in the evening as the system exits Upper Michigan.

Another system arrives from the Northern Plains to bring west-to-east showers Sunday -- few thunderstorms possible with this system.

Potential for showers continue next week from a low pressure system over Lower Michigan.
