GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The main push of very warm and humid air will start to exit West Michigan over the next couple of days, but chances of showers and thunderstorms will linger into at least the start of the weekend.

The pattern for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be somewhat similar — fairly quiet mornings, followed by scattered showers and thunderstorms popping up in the afternoons.  Areas away from the lakeshore will have the best chances for rain, but it will be very hit and miss.

Cooler and drier air will gradually start to filter into the region as the weekend approaches, leading to less humid-feeling conditions and more comfortable nighttime temperatures.  Highs will slip into the upper 70s over the weekend as well.

Rain chances will diminish on Saturday to just a few isolated thundershowers, while Sunday may end up totally dry.
