Weather Updates from TV6 Meteorologists Karl Bohnak and Jennifer Perez
A sweeping frontal system from Northern Ontario brings cooler air Tuesday and producing few showers and isolated thunderstorms during the early morning hours. A strong north-south wind develops in the wake of the front, stirring up high waves and dangerous currents along Lake Superior beaches especially in Marquette and Alger counties. Overcast, drizzly conditions continue Tuesday midday along the Lake Superior shores, then gradual clearing U.P.-wide occurs in the afternoon.
A series of systems from the Dakotas and Northwestern Ontario will bring rain chances midweek -- with the potential for widespread rain over the Upper Peninsula late Wednesday into Thursday, and then on Saturday.
Aside from Tuesday’s cool episode, temperatures look to trend in the seasonal range for much of the week until a warmup returns this weekend.
