Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Marquette MI
351 PM EDT Wed Jun 20 2018

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 351 PM EDT WED JUN 20 2018

Short term period is very quiet. Any remaining high clouds will exit
the area this evening, leaving clear skies through Thursday. No
precip expected through Thursday. Lows tonight will be in the mid
40s to mid 50s and highs Thursday will mainly be in the 70s.


.LONG TERM...(Thursday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 322 PM EDT WED JUN 20 2018

No real impactful weather expected through the extended forecast.
The next chance of showers and thunderstorms will be toward the end
of this forecast period, next Wednesday. Temperatures will be near
to slightly above normal.

Dry high pressure will be the rule through much of the extended
forecast. There will be a low pressure system that slides to the
south of the U.P., across Illinois and southern Lower Michigan,
Friday into Friday night; however, any precipitation is expected to
remain close to the low. There may be an increase in cloud cover
along the Lake MI shoreline.  The next, better, chance of showers
and thunderstorms will be Wednesday into Wednesday night as a low
pressure system slides from the Plains into the Upper Great Lakes.
Long range models are in fair agreement will low placement for that
time period; therfore, will continue with a consensus of the models.
This will give a chance of showers and thunderstorms across the area
Wednesday into Wednesday night. Of course, with this being toward
the end of the forecast period, exact timing and intensity will be
pinned down as we get closer. Otherwise, temperatures across the
U.P. will generally be in the 70s and 80s with overnight lows in the
40s and 50s.
