Sunday Forecast: Isolated Showers & Storms

Posted at 6:36 AM, Jul 07, 2013

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Showers and storms will still remain spotty during the day Sunday, but cloud cover will be a bit more widespread to close out the long holiday weekend.

An upper-level low spinning slowly across the southern Great Lakes will help to generate some scattered showers and thunderstorms at times Sunday, with the best chances coming south of Grand Rapids into areas near the Indiana border.

Elsewhere, a cold front across Wisconsin will create a line of thunderstorms that will try to move into West Michigan late in the day as well.  Additional activity developing to the west will head our direction at various times from Sunday night into Wednesday morning.

Plenty of humidity will hang around the first half of the coming week, and it won’t take much sunshine to steam things up around the region.  Temperatures could climb into the upper 80s to near 90° Monday and Tuesday with enough sun.

Somewhat cooler and less humid air will be headed our way the second half of the week; you can find the full 7 day forecast on the Weather page.
