A cold front pushing across the Great Lakes will kick off showers and thunderstorms on Monday into Tuesday. The Storm Prediction Center does not expect any severe weather across the United States in the next few days. Any storms that develop or push into West Michigan could contain frequently lightning and heavy downpours. West Michigan is rather dry right now. The last significant rain for Grand Rapids was almost four weeks ago.
Monday will be warm and muggy with highs in the upper 70s and dewpoint temperatures in the muggy mid 60s. Behind this disturbance, cooler and more comfortable air settles into the state for Tuesday. High temperatures dip into the upper 60s and low 70s with dewpoints in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees.
See the attached slideshow for more on the storms and temperatures.
