Warm start to the week before an autumn chill
Summer-like warmth in the U.P. before dipping to chilly fall temperatures towards the end of the week.
A warm air ridge crests over Upper Michigan and much of the eastern continental United States, producing above seasonal temperatures to begin the week. Any residuals of summer warmth are swept away midweek over the U.P. however, as a series of Canadian Prairies and Northern Plains-based systems sweep west to east over the region. Scattered thunderstorms, moderate or greater intensity rainfall expected until the systems exit towards Friday. In wake of the departing systems is a stiff northwesterly wind to bring a blustery autumn chill to the U.P. through the weekend.
