We’re off to the LP today. I don’t know if we have ever been to Grand Rapids for a forecast before, so this is clearly big time stuff.
At 1153AM, ET, Grand Rapids was reporting a temperature of 60 degrees with clear skies. Lower Michigan is under high pressure which is allowing for an infusion of spring and making for a pleasant beginning to the weekend.
There is a weak mid-layer disturbance moving through the Tennessee Valley, and is expected to continue to follow the Ohio River towards the mid Atlantic through the next two days. Lower Michigan won’t take a direct blow from this system, but moisture wrapping around the circulation will mean overcast skies and some rain through most of the day on Sunday. Generally, the pattern is for deeper systems to run through Canada, and that’s certainly the case for the next two days. A stronger system moving into Hudson Bay is dangling a cold front through the Great Lakes. There is a shot that at some rain again on Monday evening as the front moves into Grand Rapids, but there won’t be much in terms of intensity. It will be just enough to create some interruptions for outdoor barbecues.
