Tuesday afternoon temps to warm up to the mid 30s to Lower 40s with breezy south winds gusting over 30 mph at times.
Tuesday’s gusty south winds can produce building waves and lakeshore flooding for areas near Lake Michigan: NWS Hazardous Weather Outlook
A series of systems from the Canadian Prairies bring rain and snow chances to the U.P. later this week. The first system arrives Wednesday afternoon, producing widely scattered rain showers to the western counties -- snow chances come in the wake of this first system as an influx of polar air initiates lake effect snow over the north through northwest wind belts Thursday-Thanksgiving Day through Friday afternoon.
High pressure builds back in the region briefly on Saturday until another Canadian Prairies front brings system snow Sunday morning, then transitioning to lake effect snow over the northwest winds belts Sunday evening through Monday morning.
