GRAND RAPIDS — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Erik Kostrzewa: High pressure in general will be in control of our weather through Saturday. An overall east to southeast flow will gradually bring in more humidity, though that won't be a big issue until Saturday and Sunday. Some of our forecast models are trying to drop a few hundredths of an inch of rain on parts of the area Friday and Saturday -- mainly in the afternoons -- as an upper level disturbance over the Ohio Valley flirts with the area. Though most of the rain with that will miss us to the south and east, we will have to keep an eye on how that weak system pans out. Otherwise, our next decent rain chance comes late Saturday night and Sunday morning ahead of a cold front.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows in the lower to middle 60s. Light east/southeast wind.
TOMORROW: Partly cloudy and continued very warm. Highs in the upper 80s. East/southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Partly cloudy and a bit muggy. Lows in the middle to upper 60s. Light and variable wind.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 5pm and into the overnight hours. Hot and a bit more humid with highs in the upper 80s. Light east wind.
