The cool spring temperature trend continues over Upper Michigan under a predominantly northwesterly jet stream from the Canadian Prairies. A series of systems ride along the jet stream track, producing rounds of showers over the U.P. in the next seven days.

Wednesday night in the U.P. cool, dry conditions linger before a Canadian Prairies system rolls into the region Thursday midday, producing scattered showers and few thunderstorms throughout the afternoon. Outside of rainfall, wildfire risk potential is elevated in the Western U.P., especially in the interior where warm, breezy and dry conditions can persist before any rainfall event.
