A quick-moving system over Northern Minnesota makes its way to Upper Michigan Monday night, bringing mainly light rain chances and an isolated thundershower. Westerly winds continue to gust over 25 mph at times, 40+ over the Keweenaw, before winding down overnight and into Tuesday morning. Above seasonal temps to continue until a midweek storm disrupts the warm and benign airmass in the U.P.

A vigorous and moisture-rich Colorado Low system brings widespread rain and few thundershowers across Upper Michigan through Tuesday night. Rainfall amounts from Tuesday through Wednesday can total over an inch. The rain transitions to mixed rain and snow on Thursday. Then, the mix changes to scattered snow showers as colder air moves in towards the weekend. The below seasonal temperature trend looks to stretch through early next week.
