Clearing skies overnight will allow temperatures to drop quickly throughout the overnight and with an arctic air mass is place temperatures will once again have the ability to drop below zero in many areas.

Temperatures are not expected to fall as far as they did Friday morning when temperatures were between 5 and 35 below zero but some areas especially north of I-96 could fall below zero overnight and break daily record low temperatures.

The sun will come back out Monday afternoon, however temperatures will struggle to warm into the mid to upper teens for afternoon highs. High temperatures for the first half of the week will be twenty degrees below seasonably average.

Below average temperatures stick around for the rest of the week, as we have a second chance for temperatures to drop below zero once again Tuesday morning. A short warm-up as we head into the end of the week, however with temperatures warming above freezing melting and a chance for a rain/snow mix Friday afternoon could create more problems for flat or low-pitch roofs and decks across West Michigan.

Still no hint at a warm-up above average in the next 7 to 10 days as we keep around this cold pattern through at least next weekend.
