High pressure will settle across the eastern Great Lakes region through the rest of the weekend. This high will slide east on Monday and allow a warm front to lift north through the area.  The cold front has cleared the forecast area and high pressure is settling in nicely this afternoon. Some mid level clouds will enter from the southwest tonight and perhaps keep temperatures up a little bit with more lower 60s for lows than if the area were completely clear. The clouds will move out of the region late tonight and Sunday will be dry and mostly clear with winds out of the northeast to east. High temperatures will be akin to today with upper 70s east to upper 80s west.

National Weather Service Marine Forecast suggests good conditions return after the next three days of unsettled weather:

924 PM EDT Mon Jun 6 2022

South-southwest winds of 15-20 knots will persist through Tuesday morning. Although winds will approach sustained of 20 knots, opted to maintain no headlines as winds will be offshore and the biggest wind threat will be with any thunderstorms that develop over the Lake. Wind will shift to west-northwest behind a cold front that moves east across Lake Erie late morning into early afternoon on Tuesday. During this time winds will weaken to 10-15 knots. On Wednesday, high pressure builds over the area, allowing winds to become variable at 5-10 knots. On Thursday, winds will become northwesterly at 5-10 knots which will persist into Friday before another low pressure approaches the area, shifting winds again. No marine headlines are anticipated at this time.
