WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Mostly Sunny and Dry Saturday
Good Chance of Scattered Showers and Storms on Sunday
TONIGHT: Mostly clear with diminishing winds (down to 5-10 mph) and a big, romantic full moon. We’ll see low temperatures in the low 60s.
WEEKEND: Saturday will be 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. We’ll all have a chance of scattered showers and t-storms on Sunday. We could use the rain. 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.).
