Spring warmth begins Friday with abundant sunshine

Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez

Cresting high pressure produces mostly clear skies and warmth over the Upper Peninsula for the first weekend of spring. But winds are expected to pick up in speed Saturday with southerly gusts over 25 mph. The combination of high wind speeds, low relative humidity and a reducing snowpack elevates the fire danger risk this weekend in the U.P. -- use caution in any open burning including campfires.

An approaching cold front Sunday night spells the end to the drying trend with rain chances beginning in the western counties and then U.P. wide into Monday morning. The moisture flow is expected to continue into midweek as a trailing system from the Central Plains produces a mix of rain and snow over the U.P. into Wednesday.
