- Additional shower chances through Saturday morning.

- Overall quiet, cooler weather this weekend ahead of more chances for showers early next week.

Pattern synopsis:

An upper trough will drift from the western Lakes region to northeast Ontario tonight and Thursday. At the surface, a warm front extends from a surface low over Wisconsin across southern lower Michigan to Lake Erie. This low will occlude out as a cold front sweeps southern lower Michigan later today and tonight, with the low itself north of the Soo by daylight Thursday.

Forecast Details:

Bands of precipitation pinwheeling around the upper low will continue to bring light rain to the Northwoods through the evening, tapering off overnight. Instability is hard to come by, but storms that find some may produce a flash or two of lightning. There is some potential for gusty winds (apart from background winds) with this convection, but impacts look to remain minimal. After perhaps a short lull in the wee hours, another impulse will bring another round of light rain for most places on Thursday.

Marine headlines will be gradually ratcheted back as the low occludes. Current gale warnings will expire this evening, to be replaced with small craft advisories, that will themselves drop at 06z on the Michigan side and 12z elsewhere. Marine impacts continue at this hour, so future shifts will monitor for potential extension of these headlines.

The wind advisory for land portions of eastern upper will similarly be allowed to expire on schedule at 5pm. Gusts will continue in that area tonight, just not strong enough to reach headline criteria.

A long wave trough will be centered across north central Canada over the next few days. The Great Lakes will be on the southern end of this trough. Weak disturbances moving through the flow will bring occasional rain shower chances through Saturday morning.
Progressively colder air will even lead to the possibility of rain mixing in with or changing over to all snow showers late Friday night into Saturday morning as the lakes become activated (lake/850 mb delta ts in the mid teens). Wouldn't be shocked if parts of eastern upper and the higher terrain of northern lower even received a thin coating of snow. The flow flattens out for much of Sunday into Monday likely bringing a break from the shower chances.
Another trough off of the Pacific will bring back shower chances Monday night into Tuesday. Temperatures will average slightly below average during the long term with Saturday/Saturday night the coldest period.

MVFR/VFR cigs will lower through the afternoon and especially overnight as pinwheels of precipitation rotate around an upper low currently west and northwest of the terminals. Precipitation will be overwhelmingly just showers, with a chance for thunder too small to mention in the TAFs. Expect easterly surface winds to gradually veer to northwest by the end of the period.
