GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A damp and mild Sunday will start to change back into cooler, snowier weather during a day of transition Monday.

Early morning rain will taper off to only a few spotty showers and drizzle during the day as drier air briefly moves into the state.  However, more moisture will arrive Monday afternoon and evening, just as temperatures start to slip back into the 30s.

Rain showers will transition to snow Monday evening, but little to no accumulation is expected for most places through Tuesday morning.

The potential for some minor accumulation does exist later Tuesday and Tuesday night, though, as colder air continues to roll in and another upper-level disturbance provides an extra boost.  Roads may become slick in spots Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.

In the meantime, dense fog may be the biggest issue during the day Monday — it was enough to cause some school delays early Monday morning.

The rest of the week features seasonable conditions. You can check out the updated 7 Day Forecast on the Weather page.
