With the Memorial Day weekend marking the unofficial start to summer in Michigan, Mother Nature is still trying to decide what season she wants us to experience. Rain has been projected for most of the state in forecasts this week. But, MLive.com's Mark Torregrossa has a great breakdown as to when to expect rain and storms this weekend.

His breakdown shows a mostly dry Friday, despite the heavy presence of cloud cover. Those clouds will will bring rain to the southern portions of the Lower Peninsula Friday night. Models provided in the report show the chance of heavy rains along I-94 and I-96, directly impacting Lansing and Jackson.

The good news is, that first wave of rain should move out of Michigan very early Saturday morning, leaving most of the state dry throughout the day. But, Saturday night, showers and storms will move over most of the Upper Peninsula, while the northern Lower Peninsula may see a stray shower.

Then, Sunday, expect widespread showers across the entire state. The heaviest rain will be across the Upper Peninsula and northern Lower Michigan. These storms move out Sunday night, leaving us with a mostly dry Memorial Day across most of the state, outside of a few hit and miss showers, especially north.

Being a weather nerd, when it comes to statewide coverage, I trust Mark Torregrossa more than most. Follow his updates all weekend right here with this link to MLive.com's weather landing page.
