High pressure over Upper Michigan gives way to a Canadian Prairies system Wednesday, with scattered showers and few thunderstorms moving into the western counties then working eastward into Thursday evening as the U.P. airmass gradually transitions to humid conditions.

The Canadian Prairies system then becomes stationary southwest of the U.P., keeping rain and thunderstorm chances through the weekend.

By early next week, the system eventually exits both Upper and Lower Michigan with a return to mostly sunny skies Tuesday.
