Rain chances continue late Friday and into Saturday, diminishing in the evening as low pressure system tracks southeast of Upper Michigan.

Another system arrives from the Northern Plains to bring west-to-east showers Sunday -- few thunderstorms possible with this system. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a marginal severe risk for much of the western U.P. Sunday, indicating an isolated chance of a thunderstorm producing damaging wind gusts over 60 mph, large hail 1″ or more in diameter, local downpour and a low risk of a tornado.
