WEST MICHIGAN – After a fall-like morning swept across lower Michigan on Saturday morning with temps falling in to the 20s and 30s, a cold front sliding in to the state on Sunday will likely generate some rain showers across the area.

While we’re not expecting heavy, soaking rains, some locations could pick up between a quarter and a half-inch. Areas north of Grand Rapids have been particularly dry over the last several weeks, while our southern counties have received far more rain…not to mention the three to five-inch soaker earlier in the week from Wyoming to Grandville.

Extensive clouds and precipitation will likely hold our high temperatures on Sunday only to the low/mid 60s with south/southwest winds at about five to ten miles per hours. Small Craft Advisories and a high beach hazard risk remain in effect through Sunday morning from Holland northward. Waves are expected on the order of three to five feet, but will decrease later in the day.

We’ll return to sunshine Monday with comfortable temperatures and our next chance of rain coming later Wednesday/Thursday as a warm front lifts through the state. Look for highs to reach the 80s later in the week ahead of our next weather system.
