WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Warm, Pleasant Days
Chance Showers/Storms Monday Night/Tuesday
TODAY Mostly sunny to partly cloudy dry and warm for this afternoon. Some haze will be around due to Canadian wildfires. Highs inland will be in the low-mid 80s. It will be cooler near Lake Michigan, with some fog on Lake Michigan possible through the day. Winds this afternoon will be south to-southeast at 5-15 mph. Waves at Lake Michigan will be calm to 2 feet through Sunday, but water temperatures are very cold due to upwelling (an example of upwelling from last year at the link) Water temperatures were taken Sunday AM: 43 Grand Haven, 54 South Haven, 52 Muskegon, 52 Holland St. Park, 49 Saugatuck.
LOOKING AHEAD We’ll have a chance of showers and storms from Monday night into at least early Tuesday. Most areas will see rain then and perhaps as much as 1/4″ to 1/2″. We may not see rain until around or after midnight Monday, so if you have a Monday evening golf or softball league, odds favor you’ll get that in. We will see temperatures into the mid-upper 80s on Monday (cooler near Lake Michigan). Monday should be the warmest day of 2015 so far. We’ll be partly-mostly sunny and a little bit cooler for Wednesday and Thursday of next week. A chance of scattered showers and storms returns for next weekend.
