Today let’s take a look at Lower Michigan, affectionately called the Mitten!
At 1153pm EDT, the temperature at Grand Rapids, MI was 57 degrees under fair skies. High pressure is found throughout the Great Lakes region, leading to fairly pleasant conditions over much of the region. High pressure is expected to stick around for a few days, so this cool late summer pattern isn’t going to go anywhere fast. However, there is a mid-level disturbance working through the Upper Midwest tonight as a vortmax is shifting through MN and into WI through the morning hours. Rain showers found over northern MN will shift into WI overnight and could bring a couple of spritzes to the Grand Rapids area sometime late morning to early afternoon on Thursday. Minimal amounts, if any, are expected as it shifts on through and clear out by late Thursday afternoon. After that, pleasant skies are expected into the weekend!
