WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Laura Velasquez: Clear and chilly tonight with temps falling to near 50 degrees. A stray shower is possible early Friday morning, mainly near the lakeshore north of I-96, otherwise expect a good deal of sunshine with highs in the mid 70s, which is exactly average for this time of the year. The weekend will feature a substantial warm up with winds turning southwesterly and temps rising into the low 80s. It'll stay mainly dry, too - although by later Sunday a few showers are possible. While there are not any big storm systems heading in our direction, there will be a few chances for showers next week.
