WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Craig: Showers and a few thunderstorms will become more likely on Thursday as a cold front and some upper level energy pivot across the Great Lakes. Severe weather is not anticipated, but brief, heavy rain and some gusty winds are possible in some of the storm cells that form. Warm, muggy conditions will continue through Thursday, but sharply cooler, more comfortable, drier air filters in by Friday. By the weekend, highs are only expected in the 60s with morning lows in the 40s! Another warm up should commence by the middle of next week as highs approach 80 again or better.
