Wednesday Forecast: Spotty Afternoon Showers

Posted at 3:15 AM, May 08, 2013

HOLLAND, Mich. — Parts of West Michigan will likely see a few brief showers Wednesday afternoon, but rain is not likely to cause issues for the Tulip Time Volksparade in Holland.

Some limited moisture wrapping around a system on the East Coast will combine with the lift generated by an afternoon lake breeze and allow a few isolated showers to develop mainly along or near U.S. 131.  Temperatures will still make it into the mid to upper 70s Wednesday afternoon.

A more widespread rain chance will arrive late Thursday, with showers and possibly thunderstorms likely especially during the nighttime hours.  Those will exit the area Friday morning.

Another cold front will move through on Saturday, but is likely to only bring a few scattered showers to West Michigan.
