WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Reece Cole: Mild air is making a comeback due to a strong southerly flow. This wind shift will make the smoky haze exit our area quicker, but it may return on Monday. Temperatures overnight will stay in the mid 60s once again with humidity building. Sunday looks to be the hottest day of August so far! Areas along I-96 will be in the upper 80s, while communities near I-94 have a shot at 90 degrees! Winds will be out of the west southwest at 5 to 10 mph, keeping wave heights on Lake Michigan safe for swimming! A great way to end the weekend brings great weather through the work week as well, with temps staying in the low to mid 80s through Wednesday. Partly cloudy skies will dominate the week, but a pop up shower or storm late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning is possible. We have another shot at 90 across all of West Michigan on Thursday! Stay tuned to FOX 17 for your latest weather updates.
