GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A cold front dropping through the Great Lakes will trigger some scattered showers and thunderstorms during the day Monday.

Warm air building ahead of the front will fuel some thunderstorms that may be on the strong side, although widespread severe weather is not expected.  The majority of the activity will pop up in the afternoon into the early evening hours, but many places will still remain dry.  Areas east of U.S. 131 will likely see the strongest and most widespread storms.

The front will clear out of West Michigan overnight tonight, with less humid air arriving during the day Tuesday.  Temperatures in the low 80s Monday will drop into the mid 70s for Tuesday.  Overnight lows may slip into the 40s in many spots Wednesday morning.

Warmer, more humid air will arrive in the late stages of the week and next weekend, just in time for the official start of summer.  You can find the 7 Day Forecast on the Weather page.
