It's a chilly and windy one out there. Saturday's highs will likely only get to around 50 with gusty winds out of the northwest. Skies may see some clear patches here and there, but they will likely be mostly cloudy. Periods of light lake effect rain are also likely, but showers should be scattered and intermittent.
Saturday night, lows will cool down into the 40s around the shores of the Great Lakes, but it should be much cooler in the 30s inland. Winds should decrease a bit. Skies will remain mostly cloudy to overcast and light rain is likely to continue. Given the cooling temperatures, it's not out of the question to see some frozen precipitation. That doesn't necessarily mean snow, but whatever you see, if anything, I would like to hear some reports.
Sunday should see near identical conditions, but as high pressure moves closer to the Great Lakes, skies may clear up a bit more and winds should decrease, but not by much. Lake effect rain near Lake Superior with a northwest wind is likely to continue.
Sunday night is when things change a bit more. Lows will be in the 40s near the lakes and 30s inland again, but skies should become mostly clear and rain should stop.
Over the course of the weekend, the northeastern UP will see the heaviest total rainfall, like Alger and Luce counties.
Monday, as winds pick up out of the south behind the high pressure system, temperatures will warm up into the 60s and we should see more sunshine. The rest of the week looks seasonable for temperatures or a bit cooler, but definitely drier than this past week. I'll add up some rainfall totals on the Late News for you.
Happy fall, everyone! As of 10:49 a.m. ET Saturday, it is fall. 10:49 marks the autumnal equinox. Saturday should see very close to 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of night, hence the Latin word "equinox" for equal night. The southern hemisphere marks its first day of spring. From what I understand, auroras are more common this time of year. Check out this website for details on that. For more, find me on Facebook !
