Chances of showers and storms ending early this morning
then dry thru tonight...

High Impact Weather Potential...Slight chance of a few non-severe thunderstorms for areas along and south of a line from Grand Traverse Bay to Saginaw Bay early this morning.

Upstream low pressure system has reached the Upper Mississippi Valley early this morning. Instability axis poking into Wisconsin just ahead of the low center continues to produce an area of convection over NE Wisconsin and much of Northern Michigan. Some embedded thunder is still occurring...but remains elevated in nature and is thus only producing some heavy rain and a few hits of lightning. This precip event will be a "quick hitter" during the early morning hours...and should largely end by around 12Z as the low center quickly tracks thru and out of Lower Michigan early this morning
do not expect any threat of strong/severe storms given the elevated nature of these storms. Any chances of thunder should remain along and south of a line from Grand Traverse Bay to Saginaw Bay along the northern edge of the instability axis.

Once this early morning precip ends...the rest of today should be dry with decreasing clouds from SW to NE as this system exits eastward away from Michigan. High temps this afternoon will range from the 50s across Eastern Upper and far Northern Lower Michigan to the lower 70s near Saginaw Bay. Tonight will be mainly clear and cold with overnight lows cooling into the 30s.

Short wave ridging will result in precipitation free and warm conditions into much of Tuesday. A Pacific trough currently evident on satellite imagery over north-central California will then lead to increasing clouds/winds and shower chances late Tuesday and especially Tuesday night. Southeast winds are expected to become rather gusty late Tuesday into Tuesday night.

Highs ranging from the mid and upper 50s north to the mid and upper 60s south. Lows Monday night in the chilly 30s to around 40 then mainly the 40s Tuesday night.

The Pacific trough is expected to bring rain showers and possible thunderstorms Wednesday into Wednesday night. Drier and progressively colder air then follow for the end of the week into the beginning of next weekend. There could even be a few snow showers around during that time as well.

Some SHRA and a few TSRA overnight. Lower cigs late tonight into Sunday CIU/PLN.

A fast-moving system will push showers ese-ward in the northern Great Lakes. Multiple bands of showers and embedded TSRA are organizing upstream. Have included TSRA in the TVC TAF for part of the overnight, but thunder is a possibility at other sites too. This precip will eventually lower cigs, with PLN/CIU MVFR to perhaps IFR late tonight into part of Sunday.

A period of se to s winds late tonight, gives way to breezy nw winds later on Sunday. LLWS for part of tonight TVC/MBL.

Winds and waves will remain below SCA criteria for the first part of this week. Chances of showers and possibly a few thunderstorms will end early this morning...with dry wx expected for the first part of this week.
