(WEST MICHIGAN) — FOX 17 — As has been the case most of the summer, another shot of cool air is poised to enter West Michigan.

After high temperatures barely above 70 degrees Tuesday afternoon, clearing skies will set the stage for a chilly night. This image from our in-house computer model, Future Track, shows low temperatures Wednesday morning well down into the 40s away from Lake Michigan. The normal low for this time of year is in the low 60s, while normal highs are in the low 80s. All indications are that temperatures will be below normal until this weekend.

Even though it’s going to be unusually cool, the record lows for Wednesday’s date won’t be in jeopardy. Here is a look at the record lows that exist for August 14:

  • Grand Rapids, 41 (1964)
  • Muskegon, 42 (1990)
  • Lansing, 40 (1964)

If you like it a little warmer, it appears we will be back into the 80s this weekend. For the latest forecast, join us on FOX 17 News, or visit the weather page at
