The low pressure system that brought heavy, widespread rain over Upper Michigan Thursday lifts northeast region overnight. Still, lingering moisture keeps foggy and drizzly conditions through Friday morning. Then, building high pressure leads to gradual clearing west to east through Friday afternoon. Warm and sunny conditions kick off Memorial Day weekend early Saturday, until a Northern Plains system brings rounds of rain beginning Saturday afternoon through early next week.

The systems early next week ride along a southwesterly jet stream that also drives warmer, humid air to the U.P. -- summertime highs and muggy conditions on Memorial Day.
