High pressure from the Prairie Provinces enters the U.P. Tuesday night, resulting in gradual clearing of clouds and the sunshine breaking out west through east before the sunset.
With the cresting high pressure come mostly sunny skies Wednesday. The combination of warm and dry conditions present a wildfire risk especially along the western and central interior of the U.P. -- take caution on any outdoor burning Wednesday afternoon. Rain chances limited to mainly the Southern U.P. Thursday through Friday as the high pressure holds off much of the energy from a Central Plains system.
The high pressure breaks down Sunday as a Northern Plains sweeps west through east over Upper Michigan.
Temperatures gradually rise above the seasonal trend these next seven days.
