Out of the line of fire, presently in the Plains, and to the shores of Lake Michigan for our forecast this evening.
At 953PM, ET, Holland was reporting a temperature of 44 degrees with overcast skies. A stalled boundary lies over central Indiana, with southern Michigan on the cool side of the feature. Clear skies are as mear as Grand Rapids, and flow is generally from the east, so low level clouds are not anticipated, and there is a good chance of a significant cool down over night tonight.
A weak surface ridge will set up through the day tomorrow, angled from the Upper Midwest towards the Upper Ohio Valley. As with tonight, an area of low pressure in the Plains is the feature that bears watching later in the forecast period. It will lift an occluded front north into Lower Michigan early in the day on Thursday. Fortunately for Holland, there will be a diffluent pattern across the region, which will inhibit much organization in Holland. That said, there will be many bouts of rain showers, with a few of them heavy and producing an isolated lightning strike as the day goes on Thursday.

A look at the satellite shows you that stark cut off between active rainy stormy weather over Indiana and the clearing just to the north of Holland. It will be an interesting temperature profile overnight tonight.
