GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Feb. 7, 2014) — There’s not much of a reprieve in sight from cold air and snowfall over the next week.  Still, there isn’t much in the way of ‘big’ snow in the weekend forecast.

Lake-effect flurries will continue to taper off Friday, with some partial clearing possible in spots by afternoon.  Temperatures, however, will remain only in the teens for highs Friday afternoon, with a breeze holding up out of the west/southwest that will keep wind chill values near or below zero.

Conditions will be quieter, but still very cold, Friday night into early Saturday before the next disturbance brings periods of snow Saturday afternoon and Saturday night.  About one to three inches will fall before some lake-effect snow showers return early Sunday and continue into Monday.  Major accumulations are not expected.

Cold air may loosen its grip a bit the second half of next week — find the 7 Day Forecast on the Weather page.
