Good morning, West Michigan! We're in the midst of a fairly tranquil, static weather pattern which will continue through much of tomorrow. That means today will look and feel a lot like the past couple of days. A weak cold front is passing over West Michigan this morning. Our atmosphere is relatively dry, so there's not much moisture for the front to work with. The result may be a few clouds which will dissipate later today as a dry, northeast breeze develops.

That breeze will also help to keep temperatures unseasonably cool -- again. If we don't make it to 70° today, which is likely to happen, it will mark our eighth straight sub-70° day; quite uncommon at a time of year when the typical max temperature is in the middle 70s.

Tonight, behind the cold front, we have the ingredients for an unusually cold night. Clear skies, a light breeze, and an ample supply of chilly air will combine to bring on Friday morning temperatures in the upper 30s. The typical minimum temperature for this time of year is in the lower 50s.

The area of high pressure which has provided the cool, quiet weather pattern this week will be moving off to the east tomorrow.  That will open the door to a warmer, southerly breeze which will work with the mid-September sunshine to take afternoon temperatures to the lower 70s, breaking our streak of sub-70° days at eight.

The departing low also take away our rain/storm shield! An disturbance moving our way from the west brings a good chance for showers and thunderstorms Saturday through early Sunday. Stay tuned!
