Showers Stay in Lower Peninsula Today

*Showers today will stay in the lower peninsula, with U.P. clouds lifting to sunshine & near 70's *Tonight is looking partly cloudy and dry for most–more fog developing *Showers stick around through Friday *Weekend looking sunny, but cool ___________________________ After a morning of dense fog in some locations and rain, the heaviest rainfall seems to be moving off for now, leaving most of the rest of the day with just scattered showers. The lower peninsula will hold on to a low cloud deck that will hinder highs–and keep things in the 60 degree range. Quite differently, north of the Mighty Mac will see some of those clouds lift and sunshine will help warm the U.P. to near 70's. Forecast looks dry for the Upper Peninsula. Tonight the rain showers settle down for all, and the forecast looks mostly dry. A few renegade showers can't be completely ruled out, but the going trend is looking dry. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected overnight, with mid to upper 50's as low temperatures. Thursday continues the gray and gloomy weather pattern, with most of the rain holding off until the afternoon–so a dry start to tomorrow is likely. Temperatures will remain in the 60's throughout the area. A cold front moves through mid-day tomorrow bringing strong winds and rain to the area. Friday looks to be our last day of cloudy skies at least throughout the weekend–with thick clouds extending throughout the state, along with more rain. Temperatures will feel downright cold with the rain, and highs will only reach the upper 40's to middle 50's. Saturday through the weekend will be mostly sunny with fall-like temperatures. Highs Saturday will still be cool, 47-54, and a warm-up is expected for Sunday, with 60's. A nice burst of warmer air after a few cold days will be welcomed for the start of the week, with temperatures in the mid 60's to 70's for Monday and Tuesday, with the sunshine sticking around. -Meteorologist Katie Dupree
