Beach and navigation forecast: May 26, 2022


GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — Timing is everything. The weather pattern hasn’t been so good lately, with measurable rain seven out of the last 10 days, but for you beach and boat lovers, we’re going to enjoy a big improvement in the forecast this weekend. end.

This will start with near normal temperatures in the inland 70s and lakeside 60s. A warm front will move in Saturday evening with possible showers late Saturday and Saturday evening, mainly over North Holland. This will result in warmer temperatures and increased humidity for Sunday and Monday. Inland areas will peak near 80s on Saturday (lakeside 70s) and well into the Memorial Day 80s.

The wind on Saturday will be quite weak. Sunday and Monday, it will be stronger coming from the south-southwest. This will place Muskegon’s biggest waves north to Pentwater and Ludington. On Saturday, 2 to 4 foot waves are likely with isolated 5 foot waves near Big and Little Sable Points.

Winds will continue to be blustery Memorial Day bringing 3-5ft waves with isolated 6fts, again at points. Small craft advisories will likely be issued on Sunday and Monday, particularly in North Holland.

Water temperatures are a little cooler than average thanks to a cool spring that’s nearly 2 degrees below average. The cloudy month of April did not help the cause either.

Several warm sunny days will likely raise our water temperature closer to average. Be aware that cold water could be a shock to the system for anyone who chooses to jump into the water from a boat, paddle board or kayak.

Be sure to wear life jackets when out on the water to avoid the risk of hypothermia.
