Weather system narrowly misses us to the south
WEST MICHIGAN — It’s been a delightful 4th of July weekend so far with highs in the 70s and 80s, and lows in the 50s (and even 40s in a few spots). Comfortable, rain-free conditions have been the rule for the entire FOX 17 viewing area. This afternoon looks much the same, but tomorrow we’ll have to watch an area of low pressure moving across the Ohio River Valley. As of this writing that low is still a ways off, but the leading edge of the rainfall area associated with it is already in central and southern Indiana:
Future Track HD suggests the rainfall will stay to our south tomorrow:
However, we’ll still have to watch for the possibility of the rainfall creeping across the Indiana-Michigan state line as other forecast models have the leading edge of the precipitation shield moving further north. So Barrien, Cass, St. Joseph, and Branch counties all have a slight chance of showers on Independence Day.
