Rain and thunderstorms tapering off west to east in Upper Michigan Friday night as a frontal system exits the region. Then, high pressure builds in the U.P., bringing cool temperatures this weekend. Rain chances persist as well, though light in intensity and widely scattered throughout the region as dry air mixes in. The cool and dry trend continues Monday, with a chance of patchy morning frost then mostly sunny skies at daybreak.

Temperatures trend up towards seasonal next week, driven by a southwesterly jet stream. But the jet stream also draws in a Central Plains system to bring rain chances back to the U.P. midweek.
