WEST MICHIGAN — It will still be pretty comfortable today with temperatures topping out in the lower to middle 80s and dewpoints staying in the upper 50s to lower 60s. This will gradually change, however, over the next couple of days.

The humidity will still be fairly tolerable tomorrow, even though temperatures will warm slightly as high pressure slides to our east and we start to pick up a southeasterly flow:


These southeasterly winds will continue on Tuesday as the same overall weather pattern remains in place:


High pressure will slide further eastward on Tuesday, and our humidity will gradually increase. Some showers and storms in Missouri and Kansas on Monday will slide into Illinois and Indiana on Tuesday as well. At this point, it looks like this activity will stay to our south. However, showers and storms will become increasingly likely as we wrap up the workweek.
