WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Mostly Sunny and Dry Saturday
Good Chance of Scattered Showers and Storms on Sunday, Some could be strong
SATURDAY Partly to mostly sunny and pleasant. Inland highs should be in the low-mid 80s with afternoon temps. in the mid 70s at Lake Michigan. Winds will be west at 10-20 mph with waves on the lake 1-3 feet. Saturday evening should be dry, but there will be a chance that a shower or t-shower could sneak in before daybreak, mainly north of Grand Haven. Late Saturday, storms should begin firing in Iowa as Sunday’s storm system moves closer.
SUNDAY– We’ll all have a chance of scattered showers and t-storms on Sunday. If we see enough sunshine through the clouds, the atmosphere will likely destabilize enough to produce a few strong to severe storms. We could use the rain, most counties are about 1-2″ below average over the last two weeks. It’ll be a little breezy again with southwest winds at 10-20 mph. Highs will reach the low-mid 80s inland and mid 70s at the Lake Michigan shoreline.
NEXT WEEK: Temperatures will be a little bit cooler than average next week, mainly in the mid-upper 70s during the day. Any rain clears early Monday and we’ll be dry for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. A chance of shower or t-showers will return for Thursday into Friday. I’m not seeing any 90-degree heat thru the first two weeks of August.
Check out Bill’s Blog. Bill has on the long-range picture going into August (not much chance of a 90-degree day during the first two weeks of August). Lots of interesting links to great pics. from around the U.S. and world (big snowstorm in the Montana Mtns.).
