Good morning!  It's almost Friday!  We're waking up cloudy, and we're tracking a little rain west of Muskegon.  Today's big story is warmer temperatures defined by 60 degree air this afternoon.  This is a major improvement over the wind-swept upper 40s of Wednesday.  While clouds are around for a good chunk of the day, no legitimate rain is in your forecast.  

That does change a bit tonight and Friday morning when a weak system provides a few showers after midnight.  This is a situation where not everyone sees rain.  But, it's worthy of staying in your forecast to the tune of 30%.  Friday afternoon features a return to sunshine and the upper 50s.  Your weekend is looking mostly good.  Saturday brings bright skies and lower 60s.  How about the upper 60s Sunday?!?  Not so bad.  Thunderstorms are in the mix Sunday afternoon and Sunday night.  Likewise, rain starts next week.  However, Tuesday and Wednesday look very nice and comfortable.
