GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (March 19, 2014) — After a dose of milder air and widespread rain Wednesday morning, temperatures will drop behind a cold front and usher in weather that won’t feel at all like spring Wednesday night into Thursday.
Readings slipping through the 30s will change rain showers over to snow Wednesday evening, with just enough to stick to the roads in some locations. Snowfall should be less than an inch in most of West Michigan, although totals may be higher in northern Lower Michigan where snow will last a little longer.
Temperatures will start Thursday in the mid 20s as snow moves out, but a stiff breeze from the west will make it feel considerably colder. Highs will get back into the mid to upper 30s as some clearing takes place; still, that will be nearly ten degrees below average for the first day of spring. Spring officially begins just before 1 P.M. Thursday.
