WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Chance of a Shower or T-Shower Today
Partly to Mostly Sunny and A Little Less Humid Thursday and Friday
Warm Weekend, Trend to Cooler Air about the Middle of Next Week
TODAY: It appears a cold front will likely move through dry this afternoon for areas along and west of US-131. Some development is more likely near I-69. Very warm and humid air will become more comfortable this afternoon as dewpoint temperatures fall from the 70s to the lower 60s during the evening. Clearing skies will also arrive quickly behind the front from west to east.
TONIGHT We’ll be to turn off the air conditioners tonight and open the windows as cooler temperatures and tolerable humidity levels arrive. Lows will end up in the low to mid 60s.
THURSDAY/FRIDAY: Less humid air will follow for Thursday. It’ll be great weather for Maranda’s Park Party in Battle Creek, for the Ottawa Co. Fair, the Coast Guard Festival in Grand Haven and Picnic Pops out at Cannonsburg Ski Area. Highs Thursday will be in the low 80s inland and 70s at Lake Michigan. The wind will be a little brisk Thursday, from the west at 10-20 mph. Increasing cloud cover will arrive Friday with a chance of a shower or thundershower during the evening and night.
WEEKEND AND BEYOND: Saturday the chance of rain isn’t zero, but it’s only about 20% – much of the day will be dry. We’ll see temperatures in the low 80s, but again it will be a little cooler near the lake. Sunday we have a chance of a brief shower (which may hold off until Sunday evening/night). Look for highs in the low-mid 80s on Sunday. Monday and Tuesday we’ll again have a chance of a shower or t-shower with highs near 80. Cooler air will move in for the middle of next week with afternoon temperatures mainly in the 70s.
