Building high pressure leads to mostly clear skies in Upper Michigan Friday. Then, a Northern Plains system brings rounds of rain and thunderstorms beginning west Saturday morning then spreading eastward towards the evening.

Rain and thunderstorm chances continue Sunday through early next week as systems ride along a southwesterly jet stream that also drives warmer, humid air to the U.P. -- summertime highs and muggy conditions on Memorial Day.

Temperatures cool down late next week as the jet stream shifts more northwesterly from the Northern Plains.
