Good morning, West Michigan!  You'll feel a noticeable difference in the air today, a change that most will welcome with open arms. A cooler, drier air mass moved into the area in the wee hours of this morning. Though our air temperatures today will be similar to what we had yesterday, the dew point temperature will be about ten degrees lower, about 60 degrees compared to the lower 70s Tuesday. That's the difference between the atmosphere feeling quite humid and feeling quite comfortable. Skies will be partly sunny.

A northerly breeze will keep the flow of cool air aimed at West Michigan tonight. Combined with mainly clear skies and a light breeze, the ample supply of cool air will allow overnight temperatures to drop to the lower and middle 50s. It will be a great night for sleeping with windows open!

The pleasant conditions will continue through the day Thursday. Thursday night, on the other hand, will see a return of the warmer, more humid air, along with clouds and a threat of showers and thunderstorms as our air flow becomes southwesterly. Forecast models show a predominantly cloudy, often wet pattern lingering through Saturday and at least Sunday morning. For now, it looks like there is reason to be optimistic for sunshine Sunday afternoon and Labor Day Monday. As always, stay tuned!
