A system front passes over Upper Michigan Monday, producing scattered showers but even isolated thunderstorms in the Western and Central U.P. in the afternoon as produced by a combination of surface heating, terrain-based lifting and residual moisture left in the wake of the passing system. Isolated storms and rain showers taper off overnight as the system exits the region, but leftover moisture turns into patchy dense fog through Tuesday morning. The foggy conditions dissipate Tuesday midday as drier air works in aloft and high pressure builds into midweek.

It is mainly a northwesterly jet stream pattern keeping the temperature trend at seasonal or below seasonal levels for the U.P. this week. The jet stream also serves as a track for systems coming from the Gulf of Alaska then heading towards Upper Michigan -- rain and thunderstorm chances to return Wednesday.

A low pressure system from Hudson Bay dips down to the U.P. Saturday, bringing rain and keeping temperatures cool in the region. Sunday, the low system leaves Upper Michigan, with a warm air mass returning to the region.
