WEST MICHIGAN — It’s no secret that Sunday was quite the gloomy, gray, and at times wet day across Michigan. That said, a cold front sweeping through the state Sunday evening will usher in drier air and put an end to the rain showers.

Clouds and patchy fog will linger through the overnight hours in to Monday morning, before high pressure drops south from Canada and erodes the clouds away by Monday afternoon to create mostly sunny skies. With high pressure overhead, a dry air mass, and very little wind Tuesday morning, lows across the area will likely dip in to the 30s in outlying locations. High temperatures will hover in the 60s on Monday, but a mid-week warm up is expected to around 80 or better.

Our next shot at some wet weather will be as a warm front lifts through the state later Wednesday night in to Thursday, with a better chance coming Thursday night in to Friday with some thunderstorms as a cold front sweeps in. If the timing doesn’t change, Friday Night Football games should be dry! The attached photo was submitted by Vickie Grant of Hastings.
Yet another cold front moving through the Great Lakes later Saturday will have a blast of fall air behind it as temperatures for highs next Sunday probably won’t make it out of the 60s.
