low pressure tracks through the Great Lakes. A cold front associated
with that low will move through by Monday night. High pressure then
briefly returns for Tuesday. Another fast moving frontal system
could bring mixed precipitation to the area midweek. Another short-
lived area of high pressure will build in for Thursday, but
additional frontal systems could affect the region by the end of the
