WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Laura Velasquez: A very tranquil weather pattern has set up over the Great Lakes and is expected to remain in place throughout the next week. That means mainly dry conditions, plenty of sun and highs slightly above average. The day with the most cloud cover will likely come on Sunday as a weak disturbance passes by to our northeast. The forecast will stay dry (although there may be showers across the northern Lower Peninsula or the Saginaw Bay area) but there will be an increase in cloud cover during the day. Temps will still top out in the low 70s. With more sunshine, temps will be a little warmer on Monday and likely stay in the 70s for highs through the week.
**A HIGH Beach Hazards Statement and Small Craft Advisory have been posted until 8 a.m. Monday. Strong winds are expected, leading to high wave heights. Waves will range between 3 and 5 feet through Sunday. Use caution near Lake Michigan, and be careful on the piers.**
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Lows in the upper 40s. Winds diminish to near 5 mph out of the southwest.
TOMORROW: Partly to mostly cloudy and breezy. Highs near 70. Southwest winds at 10 to 20 mph.
