Intense high pressure over the Canadian Shield continues to drive a strong northerly wind to Upper Michigan Tuesday night as lake effect rain continues and chilly air settles over the region. Showers taper off and clouds break up gradually overnight as drier air moves in aloft -- leading to frosty overnight conditions plus the potential of freezing drizzle. Temperatures then trend at and above seasonal towards the weekend, directed by a more westerly jet stream.
