Much the weekend will be dry, though there is a slight chance of a shower or t-shower north of a line from Big Rapids to Alma tomorrow afternoon – even up there most areas will stay dry. Winds Saturday will be west-southwest at 5-15 mph with south-southwest winds on Sunday. Waves at Lake Michigan should be calm to 2 feet over the weekend, but water temperatures are very cold due to upwelling (an example of upwelling from last year at the link) Water temps. taken Fri.
