GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (May 5, 2014) — Michigan is known for rapidly-changing weather, and this week is no exception.

Overnight Monday night, clear skies and light wind will result in some patchy frost. The map above shows a frost advisory that is in effect from 2AM until 8AM Tuesday. This is mainly along and north of Interstate 96.

After a pleasant Tuesday with highs in the 60s, a warm front will pass through West Michigan Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. This could be accompanied by thunderstorms with some small hail. Here is an image from our in-house computer model, Future Track, after midnight Tuesday night. If this verifies, some of West Michigan could have an early wake-up call with some storms.


Behind the storms, Wednesday will be a warm afternoon. Check out these temperatures in the evening:


It will be even warmer Thursday, with highs in the 80s most everywhere in West Michigan (except near the lakeshore).
