Good morning, West Michigan! Warmer, wetter air is headed our way. A little light rain is possible for the morning commute; that threat should be exiting our area by late morning. Expect mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with a southeasterly breeze blowing in warmer air. The wind may be gusty at times. Highs this afternoon will be in the lower 60s.

A disturbance heading our way from the west will bring rain late tonight, continuing overnight, likely through the Friday morning commute. Precipitation forecast estimates are in the neighborhood of four-tenths of an inch to as much as three-quarters of an inch. Believe it or not, we could use some rain; we've had less than half the normal April rainfall this month with just a week left to catch up.

Behind Friday's rain, much cooler air arrives for the weekend. The silver lining to that cloud is that we'll see plenty of sunshine both Saturday and Sunday. Better appreciate that because early next week looks to be chilly and damp.
