WEST MICHIGAN — Snow flew for the second day in a row in parts of West Michigan, however Friday mornings snow was much lighter than the previous morning where heavy wet snow downed limbs and power lines. Lake-effect snow and rain showers are starting to come to an end this morning as winds shift westerly. Winds will become gusty throughout the afternoon and evening prompting gale warnings as wave heights are forecast to reach between 12 and 14 feet by Saturday morning. Gusty winds will make the afternoon and evening feel even cooler as high temperatures only warm into the mid to upper 40’s.
A slight chance of rain returns for the first half of Saturday as a weak system moves through the Great Lakes. Temperatures will warm back into the 50’s for the weekend but still remain below average through mid-week.
