High pressure will slowly move out of the area today. Tomorrow a cold front slowly moves across the area and potentially stalls just south of the U.P. This will be coupled with a strong southerly flow bringing in plenty of gulf moisture. As a result, we will have several rounds of showers and thunderstorms from tomorrow afternoon through Sunday night. This could lead to localized flooding in the southern and eastern U.P. Rainfall amounts in those areas could exceed 1.5″ with the western counties around 0.50″. The Weather Prediction Center has us under a Marginal risk for excessive rainfall for this time period.
