Rather cloudy with dropping temperatures
WEST MICHIGAN – Forecasts from FOX 17 meteorologist Candace Monacelli: We wake up to cloudy, dry skies that will last all day as the roads are muddy and slippery after the winter mix has shifted overnight. Road conditions can be tough, especially as temperatures begin to drop rapidly below freezing. Today begins with temperatures in the mid-1930s early in the morning before a strong arctic front reaches mid-morning and pushes down daytime highs in the upper teenage years of the early evening. This arctic air will generate further lakefront snow showers late Sunday evening through Monday with minor accumulations at that time. This lake effect situation is not expected to provide high snowfall totals like last week, but still cause travel difficulties with low visibility. The freezing air will be with us Monday and Tuesday, but temperatures will moderate by Wednesday until the start of next weekend.
TODAY: Mainly cloudy to partly sunny with flurries and lake flurries in the evening. Time in mid-30s in the morning, then dropping into adolescence late in the day / evening. Winds northwest at 15-25 mph, gusting to over 35 mph at times. Wind chills drop below zero during the evening.
THIS EVENING: Rather cloudy. Lake effect snow showers. Down in the single digits.
MONDAY: Cloudy with lake effect flurries. Highs in the middle of adolescence. Winds from the northwest at 15-20 mph. Wind chills as low as -10 degrees.
TUESDAY: Persistent lakefront flurries and flurries mainly in the morning. Otherwise, mostly cloudy sky. Highs in the upper part of adolescence at almost 20 degrees.
WEDNESDAY: Mainly to partly cloudy with warmer temperatures. Highs in the mid-1930s.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 30s.
