Good morning!  The swollen Muskegon river at Croton Dam triggers a FLOOD ADVISORY through Sunday afternoon; the river rises to 8' while flood stage is 9'.  Clouds are rampant in the Great Lakes, and scouring out clouds this time of year is always tricky business.  It seems sun arrives north of Kalamazoo before lunch, but seeing sun in Kalamazoo may not happen til lunchtime or early to middle afternoon.  We'll be watching the visible satellite trends all Saturday long.

Clouds, a new, colder airmass, and cool, northeasterly winds indicate highs may struggle to reach 40 degrees.  A clear sky Saturday night sets in motion frost and middle 20s, traditional cool spots are likely to make a run at 20 degrees.  Sunday sunshine is always welcome, middle 40s are the destination by the end of your long, Holiday weekend.  Your back to work Monday, Cyber Monday, gets off on an easy note, West Michigan trends cloudy and a bit warmer as the day ages.  Rain returns Monday night, by Tuesday evening a mix with or changeover to snow makes sense.  We have enough ingredients, input from Lake Michigan for slushy accumulations Wednesday.  We'll keep you posted on how much when we get a little closer to the event.
