Sunny, warmer and dry today. We stay dry through the weekend, but will have more clouds around Saturday than Sunday. Temps remain mild through the weekend as well, with the warmest day out of the next several likely coming on Monday.
Monday starts with sun, but clouds increase in the afternoon. A disturbance is moving across MI and the Great Lakes Monday. Most of the precipitation with that system stays north, but we do have a minor trough that slips southeast through the state from Monday night through Tuesday midday as an offshoot of that system. Rain totals are minor, but we will not say that we stay dry. We can pick up .1″-.4″ with coverage at 60%.
DRy weather returns for Tuesday afternoon and most of Wednesday. Then our next frontal boundary arrives overnight next Wednesday night through Thursday. Rain and thunderstorms are likely over 90% of the state, with rain totals at .25″-1.25″. The map below shows combined rains for next week from the monday night event and the Wednesday night-Thursday system.
Cooler air finishes the 10 day forecast window for next Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Temps will slip back to below normal levels. Strong north winds will bring lake effect clouds and the potential for a few scattered to isolated bouts of precipitation. However, action will be highly scattered and will end up with only 20% or less coverage over the three days. Temps are set to moderate as we start the week of the 13th.
