We’ll have a mostly clear and cold early morning with scattered frost.  Temperatures will dip to the low-mid 30s, with the cold spots, esp. north of Grand Rapids, reaching the mid-upper 20s.  We’ll be partly to mostly sunny and pleasant this afternoon with temperatures in the low 50s.  We’ll stay mostly clear and cool Weds. night.  Once again there will be scattered frost with lows in the low-mid 30s.  Thursday looks mostly sunny and pleasant (increasing clouds towards late afternoon) with highs in the mid-upper 50s.

There is an outside chance (30-40%) of a light shower late Thursday night or early Friday.  Friday may start cloudy, but skies will become partly sunny for the afternoon.  The weekend looks fantastic with partly to mostly sunny skies, dry conditions and relatively mild temperatures.  The warmest day will likely be Monday with a few highs approaching 70° SE of G.R.  We may catch a couple of showers or even a t-shower sometime between Monday PM and early Tuesday.  Cooler weather will follow for the middle of next week.  I don’t see any drastically cold weather in the next 10 days.

We could see a shooting star during the early morning, as we are in the  Orionid Meteor Shower.  The weather should be excellent for the World Series (mostly clear – mid 60s), for Football Frenzy Friday night and for the football games on Saturday (see Michigan/Michigan St. on WOTV4).
