WEST MICHIGAN — Last year by this time (in 2012) we already had more than a dozen days at 90 degrees or better. This year we have yet to reach 90 once! The last time we hit 90 in Grand Rapids was August 26, 2012.

As we stay locked in the heat and humidity for the next few days, it’s possible if we see enough sunshine Monday to reach the 90 degree mark, but the better chance may actually come Tuesday with a southwest wind and perhaps a bit more sunshine. Either way, it will be the first 90 of the season if the mercury can make it.

We’ll have the chance of some scattered showers and thunderstorms on Monday and Tuesday, with the best chance and wettest period occurring Tuesday night in to Wednesday morning. By the time the frontal system swings through the state on Wednesday, cooler and drier air will filter in for Thursday and Friday.
