A system from the Canadian Prairies dips down to the U.P. Wednesday, bringing rain west to east through the evening. The digging jet stream behind the system brings a cold airmass to Upper Michigan Thursday through Friday -- gale-force winds from the north, lake effect rain plus mixed rain/snow especially during subfreezing overnight hours in interior locations.

Then, it’s a transition to more sunshine and cool but not chilly temps in the U.P. into the weekend.
