062313dewpointsWEST MICHIGAN — Another steamy day ahead as heat and humidity build into West Michigan. Dew point temperatures are a very good indication of the amount of moisture present in the air, with high dew points indicating very moist air. Dew points are usually fairly comfortable in the 50’s this time of the year however winds out of the southwest will tap into gulf moisture and funnel it into West Michigan for the next few days. Dew points this morning have been in the mid to upper 60’s so far this morning with a few 70 degree dew points popping up. Dew point temperatures this warm are usually more common in the gulf states this time of year and will stick around here in West Michigan for the first half of the work week.

Heat and humidity present today will create a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms to develop late in the afternoon and evening hours. Any storms that do develop will be scattered and isolated with a majority of West Michigan staying completely dry. Better chances for more widespread rain return at the beginning of the work week.
