West Michigan Weather

Spotty Showers, Weak T'storms Through Dinner ... Gorgeous Tomorrow ... T'storms Thursday


Tuesday Afternoon:  Partly sunny and turning less humid with a couple of weak showers or thunderstorms.  Most of West Michigan is dry.  Highs near 80, upper 70s at the Lake Shore.  Winds W 15-25 mph.

Tuesday Night:  Mostly clear and quiet.  Fog is possible and may briefly become dense.  Lows near 60.  Winds SW 5 mph.  

Wednesday:  Some morning fog then mostly sunny and beautiful!  Highs in the lower 80s.  Winds SSW 10-20 mph.  

Wednesday Night:  Increasing clouds with a few thunderstorms arriving by daybreak.  Milder and muggy.  Lows in the upper 60s.  Winds S 5 mph.   

Thursday:  Partly sunny, much warmer, very humid, and breezy with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Gusty winds, small hail, and heavy rain are possible.  Highs in the upper 80s.  Winds S 15-25 mph.  

Friday:  Thunderstorms, some storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds, hail, and heavy rain.  Highs near 80.  Winds SW-NW 10-20 mph.  


Good afternoon!  Rain is dampening Branch county, and additional showers may develop in the vicinity of a disturbance arriving from Chicago.  With a front draped over West Michigan, we have enough ingredients to keep a small chance of rain in your forecast.  Highs reach 80 degrees, but upper 70s are a good bet at the Lake Shore.  Tonight is quiet and finally dry; lows settle in the upper 50s to near 60.  Fog is reasonable overnight and into early Wednesday.  The rest of your Wednesday is absolutely beautiful!  We will take it!  

Thunderstorms and a huge increase in humidity develop Wednesday night and Thursday morning.  Not all of Thursday is wet, but here and there thunderstorms make sense in your forecast.  Highs seek out the middle and upper 80s.  Friday brings the real fireworks with a threat of severe weather near a strong cold front.  Behind the front, a refreshingly cool weekend is ahead.  Highs will only be in the lower and middle 70s.
