At mid-morning, some moisture has already worked itself through the northern part of Michigan, but a secondary surge should arrive around mid-afternoon and into the evening.
“A frontal boundary is working its way through to the south and east, so I’d say we can pick up a quarter to one inch of moisture in addition to what we’ve seen already,” said Ryan Martin, MAT chief meteorologist. “Everything winds down into the overnight, but we don’t get rid of all the clouds for Tuesday.”
With Tuesday clouds, Martin is forecasting hit-and-miss showers in central and northern Michigan. The clouds should break by Wednesday combined with cool temperatures.
“We’re actually taking another leg down in our temperatures at mid-week, and we’re going to stay there with sunshine and blue sky,” he said. “Dry also for Friday and Saturday—at this point watching for a few scattered shows to move across the state on Sunday, hitting more western Michigan.”
Martin added that the weekend moisture will kick off a more unsettled weather pattern from Sunday night through Wednesday of next week.
“We see chances of scattered showers off and on any given day—probably 40 to 50 percent coverage—but when you combine all of the days together, 80 to 90 percent coverage,” he said. “Rain totals can be upwards of a quarter to once inch combined.”
