WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Haleigh Vaughn: Today's high temperature of 86 degrees matched a previous record high temperature for May 13th set back in 1991, making it the third day in a row of record high temperatures in Grand Rapids. Skies remain mostly clear to partly cloudy tonight, with overnight lows in the lower 60s. A cold front shifts into West Michigan on Saturday, firing up the chance for some showers and thunderstorms. Most of the showers and thunderstorms are expected to ramp up around Noon, but a few sprinkles can't be ruled out before then. During the late afternoon and evening, some of the storms could be on the stronger side, especially east of US-131. West Michigan currently falls under a MARGINAL risk for severe weather tomorrow. Outside of a light sprinkle or shower, we should stay dry for much of the Amway Riverbank Run. The chance for spotty light rain showers continues into Sunday and Monday, with a large part of both days being dry. Along with the chance for precipitation, the cold front will bring cooler temperatures for next week. High temperatures are anticipated to return to the middle 60s for Monday and Tuesday.
