Good morning, and welcome to Tuesday!  We're going to be baking again today, so if you're going to be working or playing outside, make sure to take frequent rest breaks, drink plenty of water, and keep applying sunscreen at least every couple of hours. An area of high pressure to our south will keep skies sunny, and the hot air mass that had temperatures in the neighborhood of 90 degrees yesterday will do the same today.

Speaking of 90 degrees, the official high temperature in Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, and Grand Rapids failed to reach 90 degrees (88 degrees in all three cities). Neither city has had a 90 degree day yet this year, and Grand Rapids didn't have one last year either. The streak may come to an end today. Interestingly, Monday's 90 degree readings came from places you wouldn't necessarily expect: Holland, Muskegon, and Big Rapids.

A cold front approaching Wednesday will bring showers and thunderstorms to West Michigan. As a result, temperatures will be a bit cooler, but with higher dew points, the air will feel much more humid. Cooler, drier air arrives Wednesday night, giving us a much more pleasant end of the week. In the meantime, stay cool!
