- Mild temperatures return late week into next weekend.

Issued at 957 PM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024 Pronounced low level ridge axis continues to build into the Western Great Lakes region late this evening. Skies are clear across our entire CWA ..and will remain so overnight. Clear skies and light winds will allow overnight low to drop into the 20s across much of our CWA

Pattern Forecast: A moisture starved cold front will wash out across the region early tonight. Surface high pressure then builds northeastward into the area late tonight then heads off to the east Monday.

Forecast Details: Any instability driven clouds will diminish this evening while winds diminish overnight. This will leave mainly clear skies and light winds allowing for cold overnight temperatures. Lows tonight ranging from the low 20s to the low 30s. Skies start off mostly sunny Monday but high clouds will be on the increase during the afternoon. Southwest winds will become gusty as the surface pressure gradient tightens up as high pressure moves off to our east and low pressure approaches from the west. In addition, there will be warm air advection through the day which will make for noticeably warmer temperatures. Highs will range from the upper 50s north to the mid 60s south.

Pattern Forecast: At the start of the period Monday night, focus revolves around northern stream mid-upper level wave and attendant area of surface low pressure progged to slide across the upper MS Valley into the western Great Lakes. This system is expected to bring periods of more active weather back to the Northwoods before heights rise and surface high pressure brings a return of quiet weather Wednesday through Friday. Another round of active weather looks increasingly likely by next weekend.

Forecast Details: Mid-level wave and attendant surface low approach from the northwest Monday night. A couple rounds of showers expected with this system -- initially for the second half of Monday night into early Tuesday and again later Tuesday into Tuesday evening in advance of the system's cold front. Perhaps a couple of thunderstorms as well Tuesday afternoon dependent on any midday clearing to muster marginal instability. Assuming we go develop at least skinny CAPE, a couple of stronger/gustier storms not out of the question steep lapse rates and dry mid-levels. Beyond the cold front Tuesday evening, low probabilities exist for a bit of light snow to mix in as any lingering precip exits.

A drying trend expected Wednesday through at least midday Friday.
Cool temps Wednesday, but bouncing back into the 50s and low 60s for the end of the week. Next weather-maker sets its sights on northern Michigan later Friday into the weekend as low pressure encroaches from the southwest. Lots of details to sort out over the next several days, but a return to more active weather looks pretty likely.

Low level ridge axis will slide over Michigan tonight...and will then shift east of our state on Monday. Solid VFR conditions are expected for the next 24 hours. NW surface winds at 10 to 20 kts this evening will become light/variable overnight...and will then shift to the SW at 15 to 25 kts on Monday.
