West Michigan – Some of the warmest temperatures we’ve seen this spring are expected by the end of the week and into the weekend.

The upper air pattern for Saturday shows a big ridge or bubble of high pressure over the Central Plains and Mid-West. This should lead to temperatures about 10-15 degrees above average for this time of year.

Highs will reach the low-mid 80s for Friday and near 90 for Saturday. A weak front will slide through the state with a chance of thunderstorms. Slightly cooler air will arrive for early next week.
