      Warm with storms

      It's officially summer! There are warm temperatures in the forecast, but don't expect much in the way of sunshine this weekend. As far as temperatures go, Saturday is warm with highs in the 60s near the lakes and 70s inland, but it feels cooler with the fog and overcast skies in some spots. Rain is possible along with some thundershowers, especially west.

      Saturday night, rain should become more widespread and fog should dissipate as a warm front passes from the south. Thunderstorms are again possible. Lows will only fall into the 50s to low 60s under a south wind and mostly cloudy to overcast skies.

      On Sunday, we really feel the effects of that warm front. It will be warm in the 80s across most of the UP, but 60s near Lake Michigan. There will be some clearing in the daytime, but not much.

      On Sunday night, skies cloud up again and the UP should see more rain with an incoming cold front. Thunderstorms are likely Sunday night, especially west. Lows will be very mild in the 60s ahead of the cold front.

      Monday will not be as warm with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Rain and thunderstorms may linger east, but skies should become mostly sunny by afternoon behind the cold front. Lows will be in the low 60s or cooler.

      The week ahead looks like temperatures should be relatively warm and above average, but there is a chance for rain or thunderstorms almost every day of the week. As of Saturday, the strongest and most likely thunderstorms should be Sunday night along the cold front.
