WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Look for quiet and mild conditions this evening as clouds slowly increase. An upper-level disturbance crossing late Michigan in the overnight looks to spark a few showers and thundershowers early Monday morning. Heavy downpours are possible in spots to begin the new workweek. Most daylight hours on Monday, however, should see dry conditions with even some sunshine filtering through the clouds. A warm pattern is anticipated into the middle of the week with highs likely to reach the mid 70s by Wednesday. Just a rare shower or thunderstorm is on the table for Tuesday and Wednesday with most hours and locations remaining rain-free. The better chance for wet weather and appreciable rainfall arrives Thursday into Friday as the main parent low pressure system approaches from the west. The heightened precipitation prospects and associated increase in cloud cover along with the progression of this system across the Midwest will work to knock temperatures down heading into next weekend.
