Sunshine and rain in this weekend’s forecast  

Posted at 7:59 AM, Apr 06, 2019

WEST MICHIGAN – This will have the warmest weekend we have seen so far in 2019! Sunday expect partly cloudy skies at the onset of the day as then cloud cover will thicken up rather quickly heading into the afternoon. Temperatures still remain very mild and above average working into the upper 60s even despite the cloud cover and rain chances. We will reach our high temperatures by mid-afternoon before any shower or storms arrive and knock down our temperatures a few degrees. Sunday late afternoon and evening gives us rain chances with even a few rumbles of thunder possible within the showers. I think at the earliest we will start to see any rain or storms around 3 or 4 o'clock. No storms are expected to be severe and we only anticipate about a half an inch or less of rainfall.

We will hold on to the mild air with minor rain chances for the beginning of the work week before a cold front drops down our temperatures. At the end of the week we have chances to see a system bringing mostly rain and some wintry mix. The track of this system is becoming more clear by the day but the forecast continues to change.
