GRAND RAPIDS — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Ty Shesky: Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible during the late afternoon and evening hours as a cold front approaches the area from the north and west. Damaging winds in excess of 60 mph and heavy rain will be the main threats. After the cold front pushes through early Saturday morning, expect a breezy, cooler, and much less humid set-up for the rest of the weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies.

TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy with an isolated shower early, otherwise drying out and becoming partly cloudy by afternoon. Cooler and more comfortable with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Breezy with northwest winds at 10 to 20 mph gusting to 30 mph.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Partly cloudy and cooler. Lows in the mid to upper 50s. North winds at 5 to 10 mph.
