GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Labor Day weekend is often said to mark the unofficial end of summer fun and weather conditions, and some changes are indeed ahead as the month of September kicks off.

Warm and humid air will hang around for one more day Sunday before a cold front moves into the region Sunday evening.  Highs will make it into the low to mid 80s in the afternoon.

That cold front will likely allow a few scattered thunderstorms to pop up around West Michigan in the afternoon and evening.  Some of the storms may be on the strong side, but organized and widespread severe weather is not a major threat.

We’ll dry out again overnight as cooler air starts to move into the Great Lakes.  Highs on Monday and Tuesday will only make it into the low to mid 70s.

It should also be noted that conditions will become unsettled on Lake Michigan Monday as winds shift to the north and northwest.  Dangerous currents and high waves are likely; click here for the recreational beach forecast from the National Weather Service.
