4 things to watch on Local 4 News Today -- Tuesday, June 4th, 2019


Message from Evrod Cassimy: What a fun weekend! I spent it with my family and best friends. Saturday we went to Top Golf and the Sunday we spent the day at the pool soaking up the sunshine!

Saturday was quite stormy wasn’t it? We didn’t let that stop the fun though. Sunday ended up being really nice and the sun came out despite it being a tad chilly.

Monday on the show we got to try this new flavor ice cream from Hudsonville.

It was good! And then Blake’s Cider Mill brought us some cider and cider donuts! So good! Makes me wish fall was here! 

So I just saw that today for Tasty Tuesday we have a place that serves PIZZA NACHOS! If you know me, you know there’s never been a pizza I didn’t like. And I LOVE nachos so tomorrow should be a win-win! I can’t wait to try them and find out where this restaurant is. Join us from 4:30-7am to find out! Have a great day!

Here's what's coming up Tuesday, June 4th, 2019 on Local 4 News Today.

All Morning -- Weather & Traffic

Brandon: Tuesday may start wet in our North Zone, but most of us will wake up dry tomorrow under partly sunny skies and temps in the upper 40s to low 50s. Those North Zone showers tomorrow will shut off and most of the day looks dry around here as highs take off into the mid 70s or warmer with a midday mix of sun and clouds.

At least one model shows 80°F readings in SE Lower Michigan Tuesday, but that will depend on how much sunshine we get during the day. Shower chances increase late Tuesday into early Wednesday.

Also , our Kim DeGiulio will be updated us on the road conditions.
