An upper level ridge amplifies over the Great Lakes tomorrow through Wednesday, paving the way for warm and humid air to move in from the Gulf of Mexico. As frontal systems from the Great Plains approach Upper Michigan and meet the warm, humid air, the combination produces rounds of rain and thunderstorms over the region. Especially Wednesday with widespread showers and thunderstorms. Rain chances gradually diminish Thursday as the system exits the U.P., but westerly air flow strengthens to make for a windy Thursday.
