      Finally, the heat is gone, and so is the rain. The NWS office in Negaunee Township picked up more than 2" of rain since Wednesday, and several locations picked up a good deal more.

      Saturday will be much cooler and drier with highs mainly in the 60s under a north wind and with dew points back down into the 40s. That north wind will be causing some dangerous swimming conditions along the shores of Marquette and Alger counties.Skies will be mostly sunny with only some fair-weather cumulus clouds.

      Saturday night will be very cool with lows falling into the 40s, coldest inland. Skies will be mostly clear and winds will become much calmer as a high pressure center moves over the U.P.

      On Sunday, highs will be a bit more seasonable in the 70s, or 60s near the lakes, as winds shift out of the south. Skies will be even sunnier than Saturday.

      Sunday night will likely see some rain and storms as a low pressure system approaches from the west in the evening. Lows will be in the 50s and skies will become increasingly cloudy.

      Monday will be warmer with highs back up near 80. Storms are likely most of the day.
