Monday Afternoon: Sun and a few cumulus, very warm, less humid by your evening commute. Breezy. Highs in the middle to upper 80s inland, near 80 degrees to the middle 80s at the Lake Shore. Winds WNW 15-25 mph.
Monday Night: Mostly clear, and comfortable. Areas of fog develop, perhaps briefly dense. Lows in the lower 60s. Light winds.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny, and very warm, but not humid. Highs in the middle 80s. Winds WSW 10-15 mph.
Wednesday: Partly sunny, hot, and turning more humid. A couple of mid to late afternoon thunderstorms develop. Highs near 90 degrees. Winds W 10-15 mph.
Thursday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms develop after lunch. Highs in the middle 80s. Winds NE 10-15 mph.

Good afternoon and good evening! Dew points in the middle and upper 60s still reveal palpable humidity in West Michigan. Dew point temperature models pinpoint a slide into the lower 60s by dinner time, even lower than that tonight. This trend makes the air more comfortable during your evening commute and certainly tonight. Sun and casual cumulus dot the lower Peninsula, skies revert to mostly clear status tonight. The above developments, in conjunction with light winds, set in motion a comfortable Monday night and Tuesday morning. Morning commute lows in the lower 60s suggest typical cool spots see upper 50s. Not bad when considering where we've been!
Tuesday features broad, blue skies and middle 80s, which makes Tuesday one of the best days of your workweek. Wednesday, unfortunately, turns hot and a bit more humid. The going thought is a run to 90 degrees alongside a few, afternoon thunderstorms. Coverage appears spotty. Thunderstorm coverage Thursday and Friday afternoons is greater; Thursday is our last really warm day. We're thrilled about the arrival of lower and middle 80s Friday and through the final weekend of July. Where has this month gone? While we don't have time to pontificate on that, we determine storm coverage at just 40% Saturday, 30% Sunday. We'll take those odds almost any weekend.
