We’ll have a dry and mild day with temperatures in the low 50s this afternoon. The NAM (Caribou) gives G.R. a high of 54 today and 62 on Tuesday. The GFS is a little cooler at 52/57. Wednesday is the rain day this week. The NAM (Caribou) gives G.R. only 0.39″ from Tues. night into Weds.

The European has Tuesday as our warmest day in the upper 50s and the coolest at 29 Friday AM. It still looks try for Saturday AM’s Kalamazoo Holiday Parade.
