Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A ridge of high pressure over the Northern Plains brings warmer air to the Upper Peninsula Wednesday. The overall dry pattern that the ridge brings keeps rain chances minimal Wednesday mainly over the west end of the U.P. with its proximity to a diffuse rain band running from south to north. Overall a mix of clouds and sun Wednesday with the cloudiest areas near the shores of Lake Michigan.
Widely-scattered rain chances occur Thursday and Friday as the ridge slowly progress east of the region.
Cooler temperatures and lake effect rain showers emerge during Halloween weekend in the wake of a front approaching from the Canadian Prairies. A continual surge of cold air following passage of the front brings potential of mixed rain and snow in the NW wind belts next week -- daytime temperatures in highland locations may remain at or near freezing Tuesday, bringing the chance of accumulating snow in the higher elevations.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy (especially near Lake Michigan) and a chance of rain showers west in the evening; warmer and becoming breezy in the afternoon with southeast winds 10-20 mph.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of widely scattered showers; warm
Friday: Mostly cloudy early with a chance of showers then diminishing in the afternoon from west to east; warm
