Wet Wednesday; Temperatures trend colder late-week

High temperatures across the Great Lakes were ranging from the middle 50s to lower 60s. The jet stream is diving well into the southeastern states, causing colder air from the north to spread into the Great Lakes region. Another cold front will move through our area Thursday, bringing in even colder temperatures late-week.

Heat is building out west and up the East Coast. The jet stream acts as a major divider between hot and cold air. Cold air will spill as far south as the jet stream. The jet stream will be positioned well south of Michigan, allowing even colder air into Northern Michigan.

In addition to the cold air, showery weather will arrive early Wednesday and continue into Thursday. There will likely be periods of dry weather Wednesday night to early Thursday. Rainfall amounts Wednesday morning to evening will likely be around 0.25-0.5 inches throughout Northeast Michigan.
