The jet stream ridges north of Upper Michigan into midweek, kicking up a big warmup in the region -- and resulting in significant snowmelt to bring concern for potential flooding -- keep on the lookout for rising water levels along rivers and streams along with ponding of water in low-lying areas.

See National Weather Service’s hydrologic outlook HERE.

The warm stretch is rudely disrupted this weekend by a strong Colorado Low system that brings powerful wind, rain, thunderstorms -- followed by a cooldown and return of the wintry mix and snow Sunday through early next week.
