WEST MICHIGAN — After near average temperatures later this week, it looks like another round of heat returns to the area next week.

The upper air pattern for early next week shows a “ridge” of high pressure over the Great Lakes. That means temperatures will stay above average for the state with highs in the mid 80s to lower 90s. The jet stream will be located over Southern Canada, and that will keep most of the storms to our north.

The 6-10 day forecast for August 1-5 (from NOAA) keeps above average temperatures for the eastern U.S. with much above expected for the Great Lakes. Cooler than average temperatures are forecast for the northwest, and a small area in the southwest U.S.
