Building high pressure results in gradual sunshine Tuesday in the U.P.. The break from any precipitation is brief however, as a Northern Plains system spreads mixed rain and snow to the region through Wednesday afternoon. Precipitation and wind ramp up overnight through Thursday with thunderstorms also in the mix -- heavy downpours, small hail possible. Water levels will continue to rise and flooding will still be an issue in many areas. “Turn around, don’t drown” regarding flooded roadways! Snow chances pick up into the weekend with cooler air entering the region.
