We broke that record in Grand Rapids, reaching 87 degrees this afternoon. Muskegon also broke their daily record, reaching 91 degrees today. Skies remain mostly clear to partly cloudy overnight, with temperatures falling to the upper 50s to lower 60s. Sunshine continues into Friday, along with the heat. High temperatures on Friday stay in the lower to middle 80s, which could generate the third day in a row of potential record-breaking temperatures. A cold front shifts into West Michigan on Saturday, firing up the chance for some showers and thunderstorms. Most of the rain is likely in the afternoon, with a few thunderstorms potentially producing heavy downpours. The chance for scattered rain showers continues into Sunday and Monday, with a large part of both days being dry.
