Good afternoon! Chief Meteorologist Keith Thompson is LIVE at his regular time slot of 5 PM, and you should join him. He will pinpoint how much warmer West Michigan will be Wednesday, and where storms could arrive.
Tonight isn't as cool as last night as mostly clear skies trend partly cloudy toward early Wednesday. Wednesday brings heat, humidity, and the chance of a late day thunderstorm. Middle 80s in the afternoon will feel like about 90 degrees, any thunderstorms are well northwest of Kalamazoo. Our Hour by Hour model paints storms near Muskegon between 7 and 8 PM.
The opportunity for rain is important as the Storm Prediction Center pinpoints potential issues with gusty winds and hail, and a strip from Cass county through Calhoun county (inclusive) is defined as abnormally dry. So, we need the rain. From roughly Kalamazoo, US 131, and west we have 15% odds for damaging wind gusts/large hail late Wednesday and Wednesday night. This is a consistent depiction from the Storm Prediction Center. Model rainfall amounts through Thursday vary, but are as highs as 1/3" of rain. Thursday is more humid than Wednesday, and highs are only near 80 degrees.
Friday trends sunnier and less humid with highs not even reaching 80 degrees. This weekend could be the best weekend of your summer: highs rummage around 80 degrees with mostly sunny skies in tow. Bring it on!
