TODAY'S FORECAST: Mostly cloudy, chance of showers and thunderstorms

Wind: S 10-15 miles per hour.

This comes just in time for our next system to move through, providing the ingredients needed for storms and showers to fire as a cold front pulls through Friday into Saturday from the northwest. Should we see any severe storms, damaging wind gusts and locally heavy rainfall will be the primary threat. So from midnight toward daybreak, showers will become likely.

Saturday and Sunday will both reach highs of 90 and see a heat index above 100.

"A couple of storms over the eastern plains could become severe with hail up to one inch in diameter and 60 miles per hour wind gusts".

NIGHT: Showers likely. A chance of thunderstorms.

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy - low around 66. Northeast winds at 9 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Gusty winds and some hail are possible. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 85.

East winds at 5-10 miles per hour. There is a 40% chance it may develop by the weekend.

This front will bring more comfortable weather with dew points in the mid to lower 50's. North wind 3 to 5 miles per hour.

Radar shows the bulk of the storms stretching from Grand Rapids north to Traverse City. Partly sunny with a high near 92. Low around 71. South, southeast wind 7 to 9 miles per hour.

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 58.

INTO NEXT WEEK: Unfortunately, the air mass stay humid and we are going to have scattered, and possibly numerous showers and storms on a daily basis with highs generally in the upper 80s.

Tonight mostly clear skies for much of the night however after 3am we may start to get an increase in cloud cover. Potential for thunderstorms will extend through the weekend to Tuesday. We add a 2nd model to the mix tomorrow with more models by the middle part of next week. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Fair skies are forecast for Wednesday night.
