WEST MICHIGAN - Similar to this past week, heat and humidity will start to build again by Monday as highs will reach the upper 80s to near 90. It also appears as if the the heat may set up shop for the better part of next week. We don't have too many shower/storm chances, but there are a couple.

Normal highs for this time of year have us around 80. These are some of the longest days of the year with more than 15 hours of daylight. The summer solstice is just around the corner June 21.

We have the chance at a stray shower/storm on Sunday as warm air tries to push into Michigan. Most of us won't see this, but rain chances do exist. See image from our forecast model valid for 3 P.M. Sunday.
