Good morning! The area of high pressure responsible for Monday's abundant sunshine is shifting farther east, allowing a cold front to slide into the state today. Southwesterly winds ahead of it will produce more oppressive air this afternoon. Morning lows in the middle 60s are met by increasing clouds and areas of fog. Periods of sunshine early on will give way to scattered showers and thunderstorms late in the day. Forecast models place most activity north of Kalamazoo by dinnertime, before the boundary drops south of I-94 Wednesday morning.
Spotty showers and thunderstorms end by lunchtime Wednesday. Then, a drying trend. Skies will turn partly sunny, while air becomes less humid. Dew points slowly slip from the 60s Wednesday afternoon to the 50s overnight. Canadian high pressure is building into West Michigan. Thursday is a slice out of late September. We wake up in lower to middle 50s, and drive home to the lower 70s. How refreshing!
Temperatures will slowly moderate by Labor Day weekend. Right now, the Holiday weekend looks fantastic. Lows in the 40s are possible Friday and Saturday mornings near I-96, but plenty of sunshine will send highs just short of 80 Saturday afternoon.
