WEST MICHIGAN—After the second warmest winter on record, an extended period of unusually warm early spring weather lies ahead for West Michigan.
We’ll see plenty of sunshine this Sunday morning and for most of the afternoon as temperatures climb into the lower 60s across southern Lower Michigan. Readings will be a good ten degrees cooler near Lake Michigan, especially from Muskegon northward through Ludington as is often the case in the springtime when warm south to southwest winds cross the colder waters of Lake Michigan.
Clouds and rain showers will move through the region late Sunday night through Monday afternoon. High temperatures could still reach the lower 60s on Monday, despite the cloud cover and occasional showers.
Sunshine will return on Tuesday into the first half of Wednesday. Afternoon highs on Tuesday will climb into the lower to mid 60s, but could approach 70 on Wednesday before more clouds and a few showers try to develop later in the day.
Warm early spring weather will continue late in the week through next weekend. High temperatures for several days will range from the mid 60s to around 70 degrees. There will be a chance of a shower or two Thursday and Friday with a better chance of showers and a few thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday.
If that’s not enough, it appears likely that the warm and occasionally wet weather could continue into the following week with a couple of days around or above 70 degrees! Stay tuned to FOX 17 for further weather updates. At some point, there might be a chance of stronger thunderstorms and perhaps the first threat of severe weather early this spring season.
