An upper-level disturbance enters the U.P. skies overnight through Tuesday, keeping mostly cloudy skies over the region and bringing mainly light scattered rain showers. By Tuesday afternoon, high pressure enters the U.P., resulting in gradual clearing and the sunshine breaking out west through east before the Tuesday sunset.

With the cresting high pressure come mostly sunny skies Wednesday, and 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.
