Chief meteorologist Ryan Martin is calling for a mostly dry week, with a slight possibility of scattered showers in northern Michigan early this week.
“It looks like a wave of moisture in the west is going to be falling apart before it gets here, so I’m not looking at big time moisture on Tuesday,” he said. “Overnight Tuesday through Wednesday, we do have showers that can bring us anywhere from a quarter to probably ¾ of an inch across 80 percent of Michigan.”
That chance of precipitation might be the only shot this week. Martin is forecasting a sunny Thursday through Saturday before the clouds increase Sunday into Monday.
“Scattered showers try and drift through Michigan—hitting more of the southern part of the state than the north,” he said. “A quarter to a half inch totals with coverage around 75 percent from I-96 south. For the balance of Labor Day, we’re turning out partly sunny.”
There is a front forming that will pass through the state Tuesday night into Wednesday. Martin is calling for rain totals of up to three-quarters of an inch, covering mostly the eastern part of the state.
