Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
Upper Midwest high pressure holds into Sunday, allowing for warming to continue in the Upper Peninsula. But during the heat of the day, elevated smoke from wildfires in Southern Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario can mix down to surface -- bringing regional air quality down to moderate. A small number of unusually sensitive groups may have a few health concerns under these conditions.
The crest of the high pressure 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, plus a chance for rain showers Saturday.
