Building high pressure over the Canadian Prairies drives a cool, drier airmass to Upper Michigan Monday night through Tuesday. Patchy frost is possible especially in interior locations as overnight temps fall towards the freezing mark.

Temperatures trend upward and rain chances as well as a series of Great Plains-based systems move through the U.P. A strong system late Thursday brings widespread moderate to occasionally heavy rain plus few thunderstorms. Rain diminishes and cool air settles back into the U.P. this weekend as the strong system exits the region.

Tuesday: Patchy a.m. frost, otherwise becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon with northerly winds 5 to 15 mph; cool
