The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Reece Cole: We will start tonight mostly clear, but this perfect stretch of weather comes to a smooth end heading into the work week. A cold front moving over Lake Michigan late tonight and Monday will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to West Michigan, more so in the morning. We could see lingering showers and storms in the early afternoon, otherwise clearing clouds and breezy conditions behind the system. We remain dry and comfortable Monday evening and Tuesday. As of now, forecast models are suggesting a big warm up for Wednesday, but more storm chances Wednesday night and Thursday.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy skies with increasing clouds overnight. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds south at 5 to 10 mph.
MONDAY: Partly sunny, breezy, and more humid with a shower/storm possible. Some storms south/east of Grand Rapids may be on the strong side in the afternoon, but some areas will likely be missed with the much needed precipitation. Highs in the low/mid 80s. Winds south/west at 10 to 20 mph. A HIGH BEACH HAZARD risk along with SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES are in effect on Lake Michigan! Wave heights 4 to 6 feet!
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs in the low/mid 80s.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy, hot, and humid. Highs in the low/mid 90s, with a chance of afternoon and evening showers/thunderstorms headed into Thursday. Heat indices in the upper 90s to around 100.
