MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

The Labor Day weekend is upon us. The last unofficial end to summer where we get one more weekend to enjoy the summer before kids head back to school.

Thankfully here in Mid-Michigan the weekend looks phenomenal! There’s only a few chances for showers depending on location through the three-day weekend and we will break it down below.  

You can also find the full weather story here.

Let’s start with the Upper Peninsula.

If your travels take you to Marquette, Sault Ste. Marie, or anywhere in the UP it will be a nice weekend, but this location will also feature the best chance for showers.
