Mostly clear skies turn to mostly cloudy in the U.P. Thursday night as a Central Plains system moves towards the region. The strong high pressure pattern over much of the Great Lakes region holds and limits the system’s impact to the U.P., providing mainly light rain showers, even a wintry mix in the Copper Country. Precipitation coverage through Friday is scattered west and isolated east (in closest proximity to the high pressure).

The strong high pressure keeps conditions mostly dry Saturday, in which coupled with gusty southeast winds could present a fire danger risk in Upper Michigan during the daytime hours. By evening, the fire risk lessens as the high pressure over the region breaks down, and a strong Central Plains system approaches the U.P. Rainfall amounts 1/2 inch or more and isolated thunderstorms are possible in the U.P. Sunday.

Rain chances diminish Monday as the system exits Upper Michigan.
