A deep low pressure system has been stagnant over the Great Lakes region the last several days and will continue to influence our weather through the weekend. The low will slowly progress to the northeast into southern Michigan through the day Saturday. Wrap around clouds and some embedded light showers and sprinkles are possible into the afternoon hours. Not everyone will see any rain, but it'll be a rather gloomy start to the weekend. Temperatures will hover in the low to mid 60's thanks to the persistent cloud cover.
Clouds will linger through Saturday night. It'll be a tad mild with lows in the mid 50's. Clouds should gradually clear into Sunday afternoon with areas seeing some sunshine. Temperatures should respond a few degrees with upper upper 60's and low 70's.
The warming trend looks to continue into the early parts of the new week. Southerly flow will boost temps above average on Monday and Tuesday. Readings will climb into the low to mid 70's with sunshine. Night time lows will be in the mid to upper 50's. Clouds increase Tuesday afternoon ahead of the next rain maker which at this point looks to move in late Tuesday and Wednesday.
