Wednesday: Turning partly sunny and warmer in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 60s. Winds E-SE 10-20 mph.

Good afternoon! Unfortunately, our clouds aren't going anywhere. And the mercury? Yeah, that's stuck in low gear too. Mostly cloudy skies and middle to upper 50s define your afternoon and evening commute. Clouds should hang tough tonight, but if they don't, fog may materialize and could become dense. Lows reach the middle 40s.
Wednesday is better in a number of ways thanks to resurgent sunshine and the warmer middle 60s. Thursday is even warmer, but thunderstorms are on the table as soon as midday at the Lake Shore. Thunderstorms should stay north of Kalamazoo for much of the day, but grow in coverage Thursday night and Friday. 1/2" to 1" of rainfall is reasonable, but some of the lunchtime weather model runs are wetter.
Friday night through your weekend is chilly with intermittent showers as disturbances rotate through a large jet stream dip. It appears we may not get out of the 40s Saturday. Ugh! Fall is apparently here and flexing its muscles.
