Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A longwave ridge of high pressure builds over much of the Upper Midwest this weekend, bringing subsiding dry and warm air to the Upper Peninsula.
The crest of the high system continues Monday with daytime highs reaching the 90s in some U.P. locations especially along the interior.
The warm air ridge breaks down early Tuesday, bringing cooler air and allowing for a series of systems from Northwestern Ontario to bring rain chances midweek -- with the potential for widespread rain over the Upper Peninsula into Thursday.
High pressure rebuilds towards the end of the week with a warmup returning.
