Bright sunshine to hazy sunshine should hold for most of the day, while temperatures warm above average, reaching the middle 80's by 4:00 pm. Low pressure tracks out from the west slinging showers and thunderstorms over the region by early Memorial Day and this could run for most of the day. Temperatures will also return closer to average, with highs maxing out in the mid-70s. We will see partly cloudy skies with an isolated shower possible. Any storms that do develop could be severe with a hail/wind threat. Tuesday afternoon will have temperatures in the 80s with south winds gusting to 35 miles per hour.
Storms will move away from the area Tuesday night, but a few lingering showers may stick around into Wednesday, especially north of the metro. Afternoon highs top out in the middle 70s before stormy weather arrives. Areas around Grand Rapids are in a marginal risk for severe weather this afternoon, with the risk rising further south.
