Our forecast today takes us to the shores of Lake Erie. They have seen a bit of rain in Michigan so they might like to see the sun for a little while.
At 1255PM, ET, Monroe was reporting mostly cloudy skies with a temperature of 71 degrees. A stout westerly flow was bringing about low clouds to most of the Lower Peninsula, including areas just to the west of Monroe. The clouds were barely showing up on satellite, as they weren’t particularly thick, so it seemed unlikely that the layer would ever reach Monre.
Monroe and the rest of Michigan finds itself within the dry slot of the system that has brought so much late week rain to the state. The westerly post-system flow will continue through the next 48 hours or so, but the next wave moving into the Northern Plains will bring about some afternoon southerly flow on Tuesday evening.
