WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
One More Hot Day
A Shower or Thunderstorm is Possible on Wednesday
Less Humid Thursday and Friday

TODAY   We’ll be mostly clear early morning with a chance of an isolated patch of fog. Temperatures will dip to the mid 60s.  We’ll be at least as hot this afternoon as we were Monday (G.R. and Kalamazoo had high temps. of 88 yesterday), up around 90 in inland areas.  It will be cooler at Lake Michigan (low 80s).  Winds will be light and mainly east to southeast.  However an onshore breeze off Lake Michigan will develop for the midday and afternoon.

REST OF THE WEEK:  Wednesday will bring the best chance of a shower or t-storm, as a weak cool front moves through.  Rain isn’t a sure thing…the odds of any one spot getting rain is about 50%.  Lows will only fall to the low 70s tonight, so the air conditioners/fans will be humming.  It appears any rain will hold off until very late Tuesday night with a dying line of showers and thunderstorms moving across Lake Michigan prior to daybreak. The odds of severe weather are slim with this system.  It’s possible that we’ll just have scattered showers with the front, as it comes thru about late morning, typically a down time for storms.  A little less humid air will follow for Thursday. and Friday.  Looking down the road…a see a trend toward cooler than average temperatures around August 5th – 9th.
