GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — After finishing off the month of August with a long stretch of heat and humidity, much more comfortable conditions are greeting us to begin September. Those traveling for the long holiday weekend can expect pleasant weather across the Great Lakes region with just a few chances for rain.
Cloud cover will continue to increase Friday evening, and a few sprinkles may make it to the ground. Temperatures will fall into the low 60s Friday night.
The clouds will linger into Saturday and there will be a chance of scattered rain showers through the day. It certainly won’t be a washout, but it may be a good idea to pack rain gear for any outdoor activities.
Temperatures will reach the mid-70s for much of the Lower Peninsula and 60s for the Upper Peninsula and northern Lower Michigan on Saturday.
Sunday will feature more sunshine than Saturday. Temperatures will be in the 70s for most of the region, and winds will begin to increase. This will kick up some larger waves on Lake Michigan.
Waves may still be a bit high Monday morning, but they will die down as the day goes on. Labor Day looks mostly dry and partly cloudy. Temperatures will be in the 60s in the U.P. and 70s in the Lower Peninsula.
