Hello, West Michigan! A quiet and moonless night will create stellar stargazing conditions for the Lyrid Meteor Shower. While the shower already peaked dark and early Saturday, it will continue all weekend long with a few shooting stars an hour. But bundle up before making those wishes! Temperatures will tumble into the middle and upper 30s through daybreak Sunday (6:48). Low level moisture and chilly air may lead to patchy frost in traditional cold spots like Big Rapids and Fremont. Then, it's all about that sunshine! High pressure building into the Great Lakes will give afternoon temperatures a boost into the upper 60s.
Sunshine will spill into the beginning of the work week, too. Southerly winds in combination with clear skies will send high temperatures to either side of 70-degrees. That's more like May! We know the wonderful weather is bittersweet for allergy sufferers, though. Birch, ash, and poplar trees will have you sneezing until rain washes pollen out of the air Wednesday. An approaching storm system will trigger scattered rain showers and isolated gusty thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon and evening. West Michigan could collect up to 1/2" of rainfall with higher amounts where thunderstorms develop. Cooler, but seasonable, air will arrive Thursday with high temperatures in the 50s. Another storm will swing south of the state Friday and Saturday. Forecast models indicate 1-2" of rainfall across the area. We'll continue to monitor model trends and our local rivers for updates.
