GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Only some isolated rain chances stand in the way of a dry and beautiful weekend of weather around West Michigan.

A weak cold front will drop into West Michigan late in the day Friday, but ahead of it, the air is dry enough that only a stray shower or two will be likely to develop.  Most locations will remain dry throughout the day into Friday night.

The air behind the front won’t be much different heading into Saturday; sunshine, low humidity, and seasonably cool temperatures will characterize the first half of the weekend.

Some clouds will start to return on Sunday, with the next system possibly bringing rain after midnight Sunday night.  Showers and possibly some thunderstorms will become more likely into the day Monday.

Beyond that, another run of very pleasant days appears likely.  You can see that in the full 7 Day Forecast on the Weather page.
