Wednesday Evening – Chance ShowerJuly 16th, 2014 at 1:33 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
6:45 pm – We’re still tracking some (mostly light) showers. Most of them are from Grand Rapids to the east and southeast. The showers are moving southeast and should fade away around sunset. It’ll be a cool night, with lows near 50. Cool spots will reach the mid-upper 40s. We’ll be mostly sunny to partly cloudy tomorrow. The chance of rain for Thurs. PM and Fri. PM is about 15%. So, most of us will stay dry. Temperatures will gradually warm…inland areas into the mid 70s tomorrow afternoon (upper 60s at Lake Michigan), upper 70s to near 80 inland on Friday and low 80s on Saturday. It’ll be warm and more humid for the early part of next week, with highs in the mid-upper 80s from Sunday through Wednesday. Lots of links below:
