High pressure keeps conditions mostly dry Saturday, in which coupled with gusty southeast winds could present a fire danger risk in Upper Michigan during the daytime hours. But by late afternoon, the fire risk lessens as the high pressure breaks down, and a strong Central Plains system approaches the U.P. Rainfall amounts 1/2 inch or more and isolated thunderstorms are possible in the U.P. Saturday night through Sunday.

Rain chances diminish Monday as the system exits Upper Michigan, and then another Central Plains-based system brings rain showers to the region Tuesday. Temperatures steady around the seasonal average next week.
