GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — While West Michigan is expected to stay dry for the most of Saturday, conditions will quickly change overnight. A low pressure system is tracking into West Michigan overnight Saturday and into Sunday morning. This system is not expected to bring any severe weather, but a few rumbles of thunder and heavy rainfall will be possible.

The system pushes into Southwest Michigan first, gradually moving north through the day on Sunday. By 5:30 a.m. Sunday, rain showers will develop along I-94.
