NWS Water Levels:

A Canadian Shield-based high pressure system extends to Upper Michigan into Mother’s Day Weekend -- helping to keep a Central Plains low-pressure system to track south of the region.

With drier and gusty wind conditions Mother’s Day Weekend, use caution on any outdoor burning -- SEE DAILY FIRE DANGER RATING HERE.

The next round of showers comes next Tuesday by way of a Canadian Prairies clipper system. It will also bring brief cooling to the region and can pave the path for mixed rain/snow to move into the region (mainly Western U.P.) next Friday.
