What a nice weekend we have in store for us in the UP. A high pressure system is granting much of the eastern half of the United States with relatively pleasant weather. Upper Michigan should see mostly sunny skies for Saturday, although there may be a few partly cloudy skies out there. Highs will be somewhat warm in the upper 40s to low 50s. For reference, the average high for this time of year is 37.
As the high pressure center continues to move eastward, winds will persist out of the south giving us more warm conditions. Saturday night will only cool down to the mid 30s. Skies will cloud up a bit more, but not entirely. There is a slight chance for rain in the far western UP with a weak disturbance. Most of that light rain should be in Minnesota.
On Sunday, it gets even warmer with highs in the low 50s. Skies will be partly sunny at best. Conditions could be breezy by afternoon.
Sunday night's lows will be mild in the upper 30s to low 40s thanks to that south wind. Skies will again be partly cloudy.
On Monday, we'll see more 50s, but rain is looking likely with a warm front and then a cold front. Tuesday should be a bit cooler, but realistically it will only be less warm. By Wednesday, we'll be back into the 50s.
