WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Craig: An area of low pressure tacking into southern lower Canada will drag a strong cold front through the Great Lakes on Thursday. Although this front doesn't have much moisture with it, it will still bring a pretty big change in our weather on the order of some gusty winds Thursday, and much cooler temperatures on Friday. Although the frontal passage itself during the mid-afternoon hours could bring an isolated shower or storm to the area, most of us will stay dry. Our upcoming holiday Labor Day weekend looks pretty good weatherwise. Enjoy!
