WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Reece Cole: Cloud cover gradually thickens this evening and tonight ahead of a larger system moving in this weekend.

However, the majority of the region will stay dry with partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures rise significantly on Saturday, with highs reaching near 60 degrees! Some spots of Southwest Michigan could reach the middle 60s. Winds will be breezy on Saturday, becoming very windy on Sunday as a cold front approaches.

Wind gusts late Saturday night into Sunday morning will be strong, with southwest winds between 30 to 45 mph. Wind gusts up to 60 mph are possible! A HIGH WIND WATCH is in effect for all of West Michigan, excluding counties adjacent to the Indiana border from late Saturday night until Sunday morning.
