WEST MICHIGAN – After a couple of days filled with abundant sunshine, clouds are already beginning to thicken ahead of our next weather system. However, don’t look for much rain. The attached snapshot of satellite and radar from Saturday afternoon show very little in the way of rain coming our way. Most of us will see less than a quarter of an inch, and many of us will see only about one tenth of an inch.

On Easter Sunday, while there may be a few breaks of sunshine, the trend will be for mostly cloudy skies as winds increase late in the day. Perhaps a few lingering morning sprinkles or a light shower for Sunday services, otherwise most of the day will remain dry. Winds will increase out of the west at about 10 – 20 mph but we should still make highs in the upper 40s.

This system will draw colder air in to the Great Lakes from Canada for Monday and Tuesday with some light lake-effect snow showers and flurries likely. Temperatures will generally be confined to the mid/upper 30s both days. High pressure builds back in by mid-week with more sunshine returning by that time. Get the complete forecast at
