GRAND RAPIDS — WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Erik Kostrzewa: The warm and dry weather pattern will hold here across the FOX 17 viewing area for at least one more day, then a chance of thunderstorms will creep back into the forecast this weekend. The wetter of the two days looks to be Sunday morning, with many areas staying dry on Saturday. The bright, sunny, hot weather for tomorrow has prompted the National Weather Service to issue another Clean Air Action day for a good portion of the area for Friday, due to unhealthy levels of ozone development as the day goes on. The ozone levels are expected to reach the "unhealthy for sensitive groups" range for our lakeshore counties, and some inland counties including Kent and Kalamazoo.

TONIGHT: Clear skies and mild temperatures. Lows in the lower 60s. Light south wind becoming calm.

TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and a bit more humid. Hot with highs around 90°. Light and variable wind.

TOMORROW NIGHT: Mostly clear and warm. Lows in the middle 60s. Light south/southwest wind.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny during the morning, followed by increasing clouds. A slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm by late afternoon and evening. Highs around 90°. South/southwest winds at 5 to 10 mph.

SUNDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy with a few showers. A thunderstorm possible during the morning as well. Highs in the lower 80s.
