Isolated Showers Today in L.P., Potential for Severe Weather Tomorrow

*Isolated chance of showers and thunderstorms in L.P., most near and south of M-55 *Slight risk of severe weather for all of Northern Michigan tomorrow through tomorrow night *Much cooler week ahead ______________ Today started off dry, but we'll see an elevated chance of some isolated showers, maybe a thunderstorm in the lower peninsula. Most activity will stay near and south of M-55. Most of us will be dry throughout the day, with limited showers expected. Otherwise, partly cloudy skies. U.P. expected to remain dry. Winds will again be light and variable today. High temperatures will be in the 80's areawide. Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy to cloudy. An approaching system will start off slow in the morning bringing us a few sprinkles and showers, but the real rain looks like it holds off until the afternoon. The heaviest of the rain that comes with the center of the low pressure system will be to our north, but we will see scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the afternoon and through the evening as well. There is a slight risk of severe weather all of Sunday, but we're not expecting this until the afternoon/overnight. Strong winds, hail, and heavy downpours may be an issue with any developing storms. Highs will be warm, 78-88 degrees. Monday brings relief from the heat as the jet stream finally dips south, allowing cooler Canadian air to come into the picture. Highs will be in the mid 70's to low 80's. Skies starting off Monday will be partly to mostly sunny. The rest of the week is looking cooler too with Wednesday and Thursday being our coolest days. Tuesday returns the chance for some afternoon showers, but they clear up for Wednesday. Wednesday looks like highs will only top out in the upper 60's to upper 70's, and Thursday will stay steady in the 70's. -Meteorologist Katie Dupree
