What a beautiful day! This is the driest and sunniest forecast I've given in... I don't even know how long.
Sunday's highs will mainly be in the mid 60s, but a light north wind will keep it much cooler near Lake Superior with highs mainly in the low 50s. There may also be more clouds along Lake Superior and in the Copper Country, but for the most part, it will be a sunny day in Upper Michigan. It's all thanks to a large area of high pressure that is sticking around for a while.
Sunday night will be calm, cool, and clear as the high pressure center moves directly overhead. There may be some thin clouds, but it should be decent viewing of the Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower which peaks on May 5 and 6 (the best time to look is in the hours before sunrise). Lows will be in the upper 30s.
Monday will be even warmer and sunnier. Highs again will be in the upper 60s with some around 70 or warmer in the southern U.P. Near Lake Superior it will be in the 50s. Winds will be light and variable.
Monday night will also be calm, clear, and cool with lows in the low 40s.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be warmer as winds kick up out of the south and temps approach 70 or warmer for most of the U.P. The only rain in sight is Wednesday night and all of Thursday, then possibly another nice weekend after that.
All of the warm temperatures will be causing all of our snow to melt, so flooding is a concern. The NWS has several Flood Warnings and Advisories in effect. Keep an eye on local flooding reports here.
