HOLIDAY WEEKEND:   We’ll see scattered showers and t-storms this early morning and later on today.  There will be more clouds than sun on today.   Some of the storms should have brief heavy rain.  Temperatures during the early morning will hold around 70.  Highs this afternoon will be in the low 80s (mid 80s along and south of I-94).  It’ll be breezy today and rather muggy.  It appears Sunday will be the nicest day of the holiday weekend with skies becoming partly sunny and highs in the low 80s (70s at Lake Michigan).  Monday starts out with partly sunny skies and a brisk breeze from the south.  Odds favor dry weather early for the bridge walks in G.R. and at the Mackinac Bridge up north.  We’ll have a chance of storms during the afternoon/evening and some of those storms could be heavy, with gusty winds and brief heavy rain.  Highs Monday will be in the mid 80s.

LOOKING AHEAD  The last of the showers should move east of us early Tuesday and we’ll become partly sunny and a little less humid.  Wednesday and Thursday look partly to mostly sunny.  Highs will be in the upper 70s Tuesday, low 80s on Wednesday and mid (maybe even upper) 80s on Thursday.  We’ll have a chance of showers and storms Thursday night into early Friday.  Looking far out, next Saturday the 6th will likely be partly sunny and dry.  No sign of any really cool air through the first 10 days of September.
