WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Fabulous (but Cool) Friday
Warmer Weekend
Active Pattern Begins later Sunday

TODAY    Early morning rain showers are quickly moving out of West Michigan, opening the door for clearing skies. Plenty of sunshine will prevail from start to finish, with highs in the mid 60s. .  There is a Frost Advisory for Oceana, Newaygo, Mecosta and Isabella Counties and counties to the north of these counties.  I think that if there is any frost it would be limited to a few scattered low spots.  Most temperatures are holding up in the low 40s (mid 40s along and south of I-94) with winds veering from the west to the north and diminishing to 5 mph.

HOLIDAY WEEKEND  Sunshine will prevail for Friday and Saturday, with highs in the mid 60s on Friday and low-mid 70s on Saturday.  Once again, it will be at least 10 degrees cooler at Lake Michigan. Saturday is your best bet for a dry and sunny day this weekend.  Showers and a few thunderstorms are possible by late Sunday (mainly north of Grand Rapids).  Much of the day Sunday will be dry and pleasant.  There is a better bet that you’ll catch a shower or t-storm on Monday.  High temperatures will be in the mid-upper 70s for both Sunday and Monday with a S-SW wind at 10-15 mph.  Waves on Lake Michigan will likely be calm to 2 feet Friday and for most all of the weekend.

NEXT WEEK:  We’re back into a warmer and wetter pattern next week with afternoon temperatures ranging from the mid 70s to low 80s (cooler near Lake Michigan).  I have to include at least a chance of a shower or t-storm each day next week.  At this point, it’s hard to say exactly which time would be the best for seeing rain.  The models are forecasting a good 1-2″ of rain across the area in the week from Sunday night through next weekend.
