WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: The dry weather streak continues tonight, with hazy skies. Wildfires in the Western United States and Canada continue to send smoke into West Michigan, riding our upper level jet stream and prevailing westerly winds. Overnight lows fall into the low 60s. On Tuesday, a cold front will drop in from the north but the atmosphere will likely be too dry to support more than a rare shower east of US-131. Following the passage of this front, look for slightly cooler and less humid conditions on Wednesday. Just as quickly as the cooler air moves in, the warm air will be back on Thursday with highs in the 80s. A few afternoon showers and storms will also be possible on Thursday as a system approaches. We are also keeping our eye on a system arriving Saturday evening, departing Sunday morning.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows in the lower 60s. West winds at 5 to 10 mph.
TOMORROW: Partly cloudy with a smoky haze. Highs in the mid 80s. West winds at 5 to 15 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. A bit cooler and drier air mass arrives. Highs in the upper 70s. North to northwest winds at 5 to10 mph.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy with a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms possible. Highs in the low 80s.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. An afternoon shower or thunderstorm possible. Highs in the low 80s.
SATURDAY: Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the low 80s.
