A Northern Plains system enters the warm and humid conditions of Upper Michigan and much of the Great Lakes region Tuesday night, bringing few rain and thunderstorm chances initially overnight in the U.P. Then, thunderstorm intensity and coverage ramps up -- Wednesday morning in the western counties then spreading to the Eastern U.P. midday. Another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms kicks up west late Wednesday afternoon and continues eastward as the frontal system sweeps through the region.

Rain chances gradually diminish Thursday as the system exits the U.P., but westerly air flow strengthens to make for a windy Thursday. Dry, seasonal conditions take over Friday and most of Saturday until a Canadian Prairies system brings scattered showers to the U.P. through Sunday.
