WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Reece Cole: Skies remain clear overnight, leading to temperatures falling into the 30s. Cloud cover increases Friday before another system sweeps, as a warm front lifts up into the state. Showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible, especially Friday afternoon and evening. High temperatures reach the upper 50s tomorrow, with the 70s this upcoming weekend! In fact, some spots may reach our first 80 degrees of the year. What goes up, must come down! Crashing temperatures return early next week, with high temperatures back in the 40s by Tuesday and Wednesday. Normal or average highs for this time of year are now 60 degrees. Saturday features plenty of sunshine and is definitely the "pick day" of the weekend, while Sunday will have a few showers and thunderstorms.
