For more on the cold water, check out Bill’s Blog.  If you want to swim, Bill says to pick an inland lake, where the water temperatures. will be much warmer than the Lake Michigan beaches.  The water temp. at Holland St. Park is back to the low 50s, after bottoming out at 41° on Weds.

WEEKEND WEATHER  There will continue to be a chance of an isolated shower or t-shower later this afternoon, though they will probably be a bit more widely scattered than Friday afternoon.  Highs will reach the mid 80s inland and mid 70s at Lake Michigan.  Sunday will likely be dry.

LOOKING AHEAD  We’ll have a chance of a shower or t-shower as a weak front slips through either Monday or early Tuesday.  Then partly sunny and pleasant weather is likely for Wednesday through Friday of next week.

Watch Matt on Daybreak for a fresh forecast.  Daybreak on the weekends is 6-8 am.

Check out Bill’s Blog for a recap of the weather in July (4th coolest ever in G.R. – and the 5 coolest July’s in Grand Rapids have all come since the early 1990s).  Bill also has updated Great Lakes water levels and Great Lakes news (cruise ships coming to Cleveland?).
