Good evening, West Michigan!
Tonight brings great sleeping weather thanks to quiet skies and lows in the upper 50s. The clear sky will provide a perfect canvas for seeing the International Space Station. The fly-over is between 10:45 and 10:48. For details, see Keith Thompson's Facebook page (WWMT's Keith Thompson).
Tomorrow is nominally warmer than today, Thursday is just about the same. Our next chance of much needed rain is late Friday with the arrival of some end of the day thunderstorms. Model trends continue to suggest much of your Friday and Friday evening stay dry.
Thunderstorms return Saturday, intermittently Sunday, even lasting into next Monday. We know humidity resurfaces Friday and flexes its muscles this weekend. Remember, in the first week of August, the average high is 84 degrees in Kalamazoo while the average low is 62.
