      Latest low brings chance for unsettled weather to the Upper Peninsula

      We spend much of the day today in the warm front of the latest low pressure system to cross the Great Lakes and winds will be steady out of the south. As a result, Monday will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the low 80s across south and central Upper Michigan. Conditions will still be cool along the immediate shoreline, into the low 70s.

      More strong storms are expected, especially along the frontal boundary which will stretch across west and central Upper Michigan along the border with Wisconsin by this afternoon. Given the right conditions, afternoon and evening storms could become strong enough to form supercell thunderstorms. Supercells are known to produce damaging straight line winds, large hail and even tornadoes.

      That severe weather threat will shift from west/central Upper Michigan into the eastern counties this evening and overnight. Meanwhile, high pressure will quickly build into the western Upper Peninsula overnight. This will provide cool, dry and sunny conditions for Tuesday. However, weâ??ll notice strong northerly winds throughout the day. Gusts approaching 25 MPH will create dangerous currents and high waves, especially along the southern shore of Lake Superior from Marquette eastward, to Whitefish Point. It is recommended that you avoid the shoreline Tuesday.

      Overall, more tranquil weather is in store for the second half of the work week. However, there are small chances for hit/miss rain showers here and there.

      Conditions will stay cool and dry Friday into this coming weekend. If you ask me, this makes for ideal camping weather if you can handle the bugs!
