Weekend weather calls for changes

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

WEST MICHIGAN — Initially this weekend will feel much the same as yesterday with warm temperatures and a little sunshine. Humidity will be somewhat higher, but temperatures will be almost as warm as yesterday with highs expected to reach 80° or so in most areas.

Changes, however, await just upstream from us. A slow-moving area of low pressure is approaching Lake Superior as of this writing, and is dragging a series of fronts with it:

This warm front will only briefly lift through the southern half of the area this afternoon, then a cold front will quickly follow this evening. Out ahead of this cold front, expect showers to push through the area, possibly with a few embedded thunderstorms. This is the way Future Track HD sees things later this evening:Future_Track_2

Some rain will still be possible through the overnight and into Sunday, especially Sunday morning. Here’s a look at estimated rain totals: Future_Track_Rain_Fcst

Sunday afternoon through Tuesday morning, low pressure will stall over eastern Canada. The unsettled atmosphere associated with this low and the counterclockwise flow around it will mean a few widely scattered showers will be possible during that time period. Temperatures will remain on the cool side of average with highs hovering around 70° and lows in the lower to middle 50s.

This low will finally lift far enough away from us on Wednesday to allow our weather pattern to shift to a warmer and drier one. Highs should warm into the lower to middle 80s by the end of the week.
