Scattered Showers Through Tuesday Before Dry Remainder of the Week

More Challenging Days Ahead for Field Operations-media-1

Through the remainder of Monday through Tuesday midday, there could be a secondary surge of moisture over southern Michigan, according to Ryan Martin, MAT chief meteorologist.

“All combined, I think you can see a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of additional moisture across the state, and then we’re done likely for the rest of the week,” he said.

The remainder of Tuesday will dry and remain dry throughout the end of the week before a low-pressure system moves in on Saturday.

“On Saturday, there’s going to be a significant low moving through Illinois and into northern Indiana,” said Martin. “As that low shoots northeast overnight Saturday, that’ll probably be our next chance at moisture—a good round of showers and thunderstorms with 80 percent coverage.”

Next week will start with normal to slightly below normal temperatures the first half of the week, giving a good opportunity for drying conditions.

“We will see that dry stretch continue through the balance of next week, probably right on through Thursday the 20th and Friday the 21st,” said Martin. “We do see the overall pattern going dry for the extended 11- to 16-day forecast window. Heat tries to come back, but moisture is going to have to come up from the south—more of a tropical influence.”
