Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
High pressure passing south of the U.P. Sunday night, yet still a major player for warming to continue in the region Monday. 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.
A sweeping frontal system from Ontario brings cooler air Tuesday, 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.
