High pressure over Upper Michigan gives way to a Northern Plains system entering the region Thursday night -- producing scattered showers and thunderstorms. The system flows along a shifting southwesterly jet stream that delivers hot, humid air to the region into the weekend. Saturday, a strong system from the Canadian Prairies brings moderate to heavy rain and thunderstorms. Then, following system passage Sunday, showers diminish and northwesterly winds pick up in Upper Michigan for a cooler, drier albeit windy end to the weekend.
