Rounds of rain, thunderstorms through Thursday before northerly gales bring swift autumn chill to the weekend.
NWS alerts in effect HERE.
The crest of a warm air ridge pushes east of Upper Michigan Tuesday night, opening up a pathway for a series of Canadian Prairies and Northern Plains-based systems to sweep west to east over the region midweek. Scattered showers and thunderstorms with isolated, brief downpours 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.
