Sunday night update: We continue the Beach Hazards Statement and Small Craft Advisories into Monday AM. Fairly strong winds (gusts to 30 mph) are occurring in SE Wisconsin and NE Illinois where waves are 3-6 feet.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Labor Day weekend saw dense cloud cover and a few spotty showers. Luckily, summer is sticking around for at least one more weekend.


Friday (9/9) kicked off the weekend on a sunny note. We had waves of 1 to 2 feet with winds from the south-southwest at 10 to 15 mph.

A few areas may be choppy Friday as waves reach up to 3 feet.


A cold front is set to slide through the area Saturday afternoon into the evening. This initiates the chance for scattered showers turning widespread into Sunday. Rain may be heavy at times with totals at 0.25 inches to 1 inch.

Rain moves in Saturday and sticks around for the beginning of the week.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler to start off next week with highs in the mid 70s. Highs warm into late next week. The heaviest rain totals will likely be along the lakeshore north of S. Haven.


Those looking for more beach days are in luck. Temperatures are expected to stay overall on the warmer side through late September.

The Climate Prediction Center expects above normal temperatures through September 21.
