Sizzling summer heat continues in West Michigan

Mid-summer heat sticks around for a few more days. Spring-like weather returns next week.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Did you cave and turn on the A/C yet? With it feeling more like late July, that would be completely understandable.  

Today will be the hottest of the 10-day period. Feeling extra steamy due to our humid conditions. Temperatures this afternoon will top out in the mid to upper 80s with dew points in the 60s. This summer-like air could easily set off isolated thunderstorms. This evening's isolated thunderstorms are not expected to be severe but could contain heavy rainfall and lightning. 

A break from the humidity comes as soon as tomorrow morning. Tonight's dewpoints drop into the upper 40s to low 50s, bringing back comfortable conditions. This comes as temperatures fall into the low 60s.

Sunshine continues on Friday with a high of 84°. Although, dewpoints will climb back into the low 60s making it feel humid again. The humidity and 80-degree temperatures stick around through Saturday afternoon with possible showers and thunderstorms.
