A big, towering (over 6 miles high!) upper air high pressure area is expected to build over the Great Lakes region over the weekend and sit around in the general area for at least 10 days. These upper air highs act something like if you placed a 6 mile high clear plastic or glass dome over the area. Think of the huge Mall of America in Minneapolis where their biggest problem isn’t heating it in winter but trying to cool it the rest of the year! Heat created by the sun is trapped and has no place to go so it gets hotter and hotter! Something like this took place during mid March 2012 when temperatures across even northern Michigan approached 90F! It will be interesting to watch what actually takes place in the coming days.
