WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Laura Velasquez: A weakening frontal system works its way into the region tonight and tomorrow morning, so we may have a few stray showers. Most of the extended weekend will stay on the drier side of things, but I cannot rule out some showers Saturday afternoon and evening. Otherwise, expect daytime highs in the 70s with more sunshine Sunday and Monday. The best chance for rain in the extended forecast will come Tuesday.
***Beach Hazards Statement for the weekend: Lake Michigan will have building waves Saturday with some of them in the 3-5 foot range by afternoon. The rip current risk will be high and some of the waves will be high enough to wash over the piers and breakwaters. Expect the high surf to continue into Monday.***
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a stray shower or two. Southeast winds around 5 mph. Lows in the lower 60s.
TOMORROW: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy with a few light showers possible during the afternoon. Highs in the mid 70s.
