LANSING, Mich. — Dry and mild start to our Friday with temperatures in the mid-60s in the morning. Most of the next 3 days will be dry and hot, at least by May standards. West Michigan will be positioned on the northwest side of a strong area of high pressure centered over the Mid-Atlantic. In this spot, we stay mostly dry and quite warm but there will be periods of high and mid-level clouds coming through the region. Daytime highs will be in the mid to upper 80s with overnight lows in the mid-60s. This is about 15 degrees above average. By Sunday evening a cold front will drop south through the region, and it may be just enough to touch off a couple of showers and storms. That same front will move back north as a warm front on Monday night leading to another chance of showers and storms. West Michigan is still in a moderate to severe drought stage making any rainfall important and very much so needed. Stay hydrated and cool while keeping the umbrella handy heading into next week.

TODAY: Partly cloudy, hot, and somewhat humid. Highs in the mid/upper 80s. Winds southwest at 10 to 15 mph.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and mild. Maybe a shower or two in our northern communities. Lows in the mid-60s.

SATURDAY: Possible morning showers; otherwise partly cloudy and warm. Highs in the mid/upper 80s.

SUNDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy with an afternoon and evening chance of showers and storms. Highs in the low/mid-80s.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with a chance for showers and storms. Highs near 80.

TUESDAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Highs near 80 degrees.
