Fog possible tonight; Soaking rain Tuesday night-Wednesday

A relatively weak system traveling through the Upper Midwest is bringing a mix of rain and snow showers to Northern Michigan, lasting through this evening. In the wake of this added moisture and light winds, fog is possible overnight and early tomorrow morning. After that, a period of dry weather will take over for most of Tuesday. The next storm system moving out of the southwestern states will bring soaking rain, beginning Tuesday night and continuing until Wednesday afternoon.

High temperatures today reached only the lower 40s. Cloudy skies, occasional showers, and winds out of the east off of Lake Huron were unhelpful to today’s temperatures. Similar daytime temperatures will continue through midweek with winds out of the east.

Low temperatures tonight will drop to the lower 30s with some areas of fog. Fog is possible early tomorrow morning, then we could briefly get some sunshine in the afternoon. High temperatures should reach the upper 40s with light winds out of the east. The next round of rain will arrive during the late-evening hours tomorrow.

Most of the daytime hours tomorrow should end up dry. The wettest day of the week will likely be Wednesday, the steadiest rainfall rates are anticipated for the morning and afternoon, totaling 0.5-1 inch of rain (higher amounts are possible south of Harrisville and south of Mio). A lower chance of showers lasts through Thursday, mainly for the afternoon and evening.

Take caution while driving tomorrow morning if you encounter any foggy areas. The fog should dissipate during the morning, and dry weather will continue into the afternoon. Some soaking rain will arrive Tuesday night and continue into Wednesday. High temperatures on Wednesday should reach the lower or middle 40s. Thursday should be less wet although a few showers remain possible. Significantly warmer temperatures are forecast for Friday through the weekend.
