West Michigan Weather

Storm Chances Stay LOW, But Reasonable ... Hot & Humid Holiday Weekend ... Relief From Heat?


Game Day:  Patchy fog and haze burns off by late morning, becoming partly sunny, warm and humid. A few showers and thunderstorms can't be ruled out. Highs in the middle 80s with a heat index in the upper 80s. Winds W at 5-10 mph.

Tonight:  Partly cloudy and increasingly muggy. Lows in the middle 60s. Winds are light and variable.

Saturday:  Showers possible early on, becoming partly sunny and stick by afternoon. Highs in the middle to upper 80s with a heat index near 90 degrees. Winds SW at 10 mph.

Sunday:  Mostly sunny, hot and humid. A stray storm can't be ruled out, but is not favored. Highs in the upper 80s with a heat index in the lower to middle 90s. Phew!

Labor Day:  Mostly sunny, hot and humid. Increasing clouds with isolated storms possible late in the day. Highs in the upper 80s feel like 90 degrees.

Congrats, West Michigan!  You made it to Friday--and it features continued warm and muggy conditions. A disturbance draped to the south of the state will keep the chance for a few showers and storms alive--mainly earlier in the day before that boundary washes out completely.

That of course means West Michigan spends most of Friday under partly sunny skies. We'll continue to watch radar trends ahead of the BIG GAME between Western and Michigan State tonight at Waldo Stadium. Kick-off happens shortly after 7, and dry but cloudy conditions are favored for now.

Clouds build in overnight with shower chances returning Saturday morning. Again, these chances are LOW but not zero. Eventually clouds gives way to filtered sunshine. Temperatures climb into the middle 80s and get even hotter towards the end of the holiday weekend.

Relief from the heat and humidity is found behind our next storm system stopping by West Michigan Tuesday. Air behind that boundary is much drier and more comfortable, with temperatures in the 70s.
