The hot summer groove plays on towards the weekend, but with a mix of humid air come thunderstorms in the way of that sunshine at times until late Friday evening. Storms can produce small hail, brief downpours and gusty winds in addition to dangerous lightning -- there is also an isolated risk of severe storms producing hail larger than 1″, damaging wind gusts over 58 mph. Damage to outdoor objects is possible, and if outdoors consider seeking shelter inside a building.

The southwesterly jet stream will continue to deliver hot, humid air to the U.P. Saturday -- along that jet stream is a strong system from the Canadian Prairies producing scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly throughout Saturday afternoon. 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.
