As we enter Standard Time, let’s take a look at what it’ll be like in Michigan for the first couple post-DST days.
At 953pm EST, the temperature at Battle Creek, MI was 41 degrees under overcast skies. An area of low pressure shifting into the Mid-MS River Valley extends a warm front of sorts into Lower Michigan, which is bringing some light rain showers with it. These light morning showers should trail off by the late morning, with cloudy skies persisting throughout the day. As the low pressure lifts into the Upper Midwest, rain chances increase as the cold front swings through Michigan. Heavy rains aren’t expected though, as the front seems to want to dissipate as it traverses the region. Rain showers trail off early Monday morning as the system pushes off to the northeast, leading to fairly quiet daytime hours. Another quick moving low pressure system is on its heels, however, and looks to move into Lower Michigan late Monday night, bringing in some more rain showers before midnight.

Here we see the light rain showers lifting up over WI and through Lake Michigan into northern Indiana. This activity will be the start of a rather soggy next couple of days.
