WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Dry, warm and humid this evening with temps holding in the 80s through about sunset. Overnight the risk for severe weather still looks to be substantial as a cluster of thunderstorms races in from the northwest. The time frame of greatest concern will be between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. with gusty winds being the biggest threat. Now is the time to make sure you have a severe weather plan in place. Know how you are going to get warnings when they are issued and where you can go for safe shelter. Once these thunderstorms clear the area Thursday morning, it'll stay dry, but still humid. The break in the humidity will occur on Friday with temps topping out in the 70s for highs. While there is a small risk for showers and storms on Saturday, most of the extended forecast looks quiet, dry and comfortable.
