WEST MICHIGAN — (FOX 17)– For the second time this winter, temperatures will be dropping to subzero levels across most of West Michigan away from the lake.

Clear skies, light winds, and fresh snowpack are the reason for the cold night. This is because with snow on the ground, no warmth from the Earth is able to radiate, so temperatures are able to plummet quickly. There could be some icy patches (“black ice”) on the wet roads after sunset tonight, so use caution when driving tonight.

Temperatures will be in the 40s by Sunday. For a complete look at the forecast, join us on FOX 17 News, or visit
