EARLY MORNING  Yesterday’s official high temp. of 89 in G.R. made it the 3rd warmest day of the summer.  Scattered showers and t-storms will move through the area during the early morning.  A few storms may contain heavy rain.  Severe weather is not expected.  Winds will be SW to S at 5-10 mph but may be variable around t-storms.  Lows will only dip to the upper 60s to low 70s.  An isolated patch of fog is possible.

LATER TODAY AND FRIDAY  Scattered showers and t-storms are likely.  Look for brief heavy rain.  Severe weather is not impossible, but not likely.  Skies will vary from partly cloudy to overcast and winds will be variable at 5-10 mph.  It’ll be warm and muggy with temperatures in the low-mid 80s.  Friday we still have a chance of a few scattered showers and storms, though they will likely be fewer in number than on Thursday.  Highs will be in the mid 80s.  Winds will be light southeast, but a southwest to west lake breeze will be likely in the afternoon in the lakeshore counties.

HOLIDAY WEEKEND  Warm and humid weather will continue through Labor Day with high temperatures in the mid 80s to near 90 and low temperatures from the mid 60s to low 70s. The chance of catching a mainly afternoon/evening t-shower each day is about 20%-30% (best chance a bit inland along the leading edge of the lake-breeze).  So, the vast majority of the time it will be dry.  Winds will be light from the southeast to southwest through Sunday.  Winds will be a touch stronger from the south-southwest on Monday.

LOOKING AHEAD  We’ll still have a chance of a shower on Tuesday and a few scattered showers and storms are likely on Wednesday.  Mostly sunny, cooler and less humid air for next Thursday.  The first real cool fall air mass looks to move in during the first or second week of October.  That’s the time to look for the first real significant frosts.  In the meantime, the overall pattern will likely remain mild to warm through much of early September, with temperatures likely to run 2 to 5 degrees warmer than average during the month (much of the warmth coming here in the first 8 days of the month).
