GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Bands of showers and thunderstorms will continue to slide through West Michigan Monday, with the potential for heavy rain at times.

Wet weather will be most persistent in the morning along and south of I-96.  The Fennville station on the FOX 17 Live Neighborhood Network had already picked up more than an inch of rainfall by 6:00 A.M.

While it won’t be raining throughout the entire day, West Michigan will continue to see at least a few showers or storms until a cold front pushes the rain out of the region Monday evening.  Showers should end from northwest to southeast.  Conditions will remain humid outside of the showers, with highs approaching 80° Monday afternoon.

Cooler air will arrive heading into Tuesday, with highs likely only in the low to mid 70s Tuesday and Wednesday.  However, dry conditions should prevail for the large majority of the week into next weekend.
