Hello, West Michigan!  An organized line of severe storms pushed SE across the state overnight. Storms produced gusty winds, large hail, and heavy rain. We recorded 0.76" of rain outside the station in Kalamazoo--and we needed it after more than two weeks of dry weather!

Stubborn clouds stick around through sunrise this morning, but skies become mostly clear by afternoon. Average August high temperatures are in the lower 80s, yet highs will likely struggle to reach the upper 70s for much of the upcoming week despite lots of sunshine. Silver lining: It feels pleasant, accompanied by low dew point air.

A few mid-week showers may interrupt the otherwise dry and pleasant stretch of weather, but there's a good chance most of that activity misses Michigan to the south.

Enjoy giving that A/C a break! Meteorologist Christina Anthony takes a peek at the 7-Day forecast starting at 4:30 a.m. See you then!
