A warm air ridge continues to crest over Upper Michigan and much of the Great Lakes region, with temperatures trending above-seasonal through Thursday. But, the warm air surge is propelled by strong southerly winds, which soon steers in a system from the Canadian Prairies -- this brings the first round of November rain to Upper Michigan. Another round of rain comes Friday by way of a system from the Central Great Plains. Moderate to heavy rain and thunderstorms are possible Thursday through Saturday -- total rainfall amounts can exceed 2.5″ especially over the southern and eastern counties.
