WEST MICHIGAN — The weather sure shaped-up for the River Bank Run this morning, and it looks to stay nice for the rest of the weekend.

The only weather we're tracking is a minor upper-level disturbance to our northwest that's triggering some showers in parts of Wisconsin, northern Michigan, and the U.P. There is a weak area of low pressure associated with this disturbance that's located in northwestern Wisconsin as of this early morning writing:

The stationary front associated with this low will slide southward as a weak cold front tomorrow morning. This front will clear things out nicely for Mother's Day, and possibly drop our temperatures a little bit -- mainly near Lake Michigan.

This afternoon, Future Track HD just picks up on increased cloud cover across the area, although there could be some isolated showers northeast of Grand Rapids:

Mother's Day is looking dry across the entire area with plenty of sunshine:

The dry weather continues on Monday with highs well into the 70s. Expect a surge of summer-like warmth on Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. There is a chance of thunderstorms late Monday night/Tuesday morning, and again on Wednesday afternoon.
