Sat, 18 May 2013 13:20:28 GMT — Some rain in the forecast for the weekend along with warmer temperatures. For Saturday, highs will warm up into the 60s again, which is right where we should be for this time of year. It will be a bit cooler near Lake Michigan with the south wind. Skies will be overcast and look for some rain showers throughout the day, but especially west. Saturday night, rain is less likely and skies will be mostly cloudy. Lows will be mild in the 40s to low 50s. Sunday will be much warmer under that persistent south wind. Most highs will be in the 70s, but some spots might reach into the 80s near Wisconsin. There should be some sun, but not a whole lot. There are more chances for rain west with an incoming low pressure system. Sunday night will see lows only down into the 50s, but skies will become cloudier and rain is more likely for most of the U.P. from the west. This is unfortunate because there is a possible significant aurora event Sunday night. All in all, the weekend rain should be fairly light. A rumble of thunder is not impossible in the west, but I wouldn't set my hopes too high. On Monday, however, we'll see greater chances for thunderstorms. Either way, rain is very likely. There are continued chances for rain through much of the upcoming week, but next weekend may be nice and clear. For other news and weather, check me out on Facebook.
