Above average temperatures are in store today as a warm front moves across the forecast area. Southerly winds out ahead of the front will push plenty of warm, humid air into Upper Michigan this afternoon. Highs reach into mid/upper 70s in the warmest portions of the UP under mainly cloudy skies.
As the main area of low pressure edges closer to the Upper Peninsula we can expect scattered showers and thunderstorms to spread west to east throughout the rest of the day.
A few storms this evening and overnight could produce locally heavy rain, large hail and damaging wind gusts. There may be some minor water problems like ponding on area roadways. There may be some spotty wind damage as well.
Showers and storms could still be ongoing early Tuesday as the low moves overhead. Early morning temperatures will still be above average. However, as the front passes we expect a cool down with seasonal temperatures.
Although rain and perhaps some storminess are expected for midweek, cooler temperatures will linger into the weekend. Thursday and Friday will be especially cool, with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.
