I know you have Friday night plans, and the plan is nothing but dry weather. High clouds begin streaming into West Michigan after midnight in the range of 15,000' to 30,000'. While a broken to overcast deck in roughly the same range Saturday is enough to dim or even block the sun, we're still in the conversation of 60 degrees late Saturday. Skies are sunnier, brighter Sunday, and we're moving toward the middle 60s.
Your back to work Monday is essentially the best day out of the next 7 days. West Michigan makes a movement to nearly 70 degrees with widespread baby blues. Tuesday is cooler, a few showers develop in the afternoon. Periods of rain could bring 1/4" or more of rainfall to the lower Peninsula Tuesday night and Wednesday. Long range models now suggest low pressure may linger in the Great Lakes through Thursday, which means some leftover showers are now in your forecast.
Have an awesome Friday evening, a wonderful, relaxing, safe weekend! Chief Meteorologist Keith Thompson is a great watch at 5 PM!
