Skies are clear for the Central L.P. and will actually remain mostly to partly sunny for today. Clouds and showers will again be an issue for areas North of Traverse City and Grayling today. Temperatures this morning are in the 40s for the most part with wind gusts reaching the 40mph mark. Today things will remain windy with clouds and showers North of M-72. Areas from Cadillac, Houghton Lake and South will see mostly sunny to partly sunny skies. Winds today will be out of the West at 15-25mph with gusts reaching 40mph. Highs today will be coolest to the North thanks to clouds. Highs will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Tonight there will be a few showers remaining for the Eastern U.P. and Tip of the Mitt with overnight lows in the mid 30s to low 40s. Tuesday will bring another day of breezy conditions and isolated showers for the Northern L.P. and Eastern U.P. Highs will again be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. By Tuesday night and into Wednesday things will reverse with showers in the Central L.P. and Northern L.P. while the Eastern U.P. won't see much rain by the middle of the week. This will be the story line for Wednesday as a system will back track into the Lower Peninsula from the East Coast and bring a few showers during the day. Highs will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Wednesday night into Thursday morning could be interesting for some with overnight lows cold enough to produce a light flurry or mixture of rain and snow. Thursday will bring those early morning showers that could be mixed with rain and snow. Highs Thursday will only be in the low 40s to low 50s. Thursday afternoon will bring a bit of relief from the rain as things will slowly start to calm down. Friday will be much nicer with high pressure moving into the Great Lakes and giving Northern Michigan sunny to mostly sunny conditions and highs in the 50s. -Meteorologist Michael Stevens
