WEST MICHIGAN — The month of November has proven to be a wild weather month. Record cold temperatures, record snowfall, and now record rain.

Temperatures warmed into the 40’s and 50’s as rain fell throughout the weekend. Rain was heavy at times, in many areas dropping almost two inches of rain.

Muskegon broke their daily rainfall record on Monday with 0.98″ of rain in a 24-hour period.

Rain transitioned into snow late Monday afternoon, and snow will continue through Tuesday before more quiet weather moves in Wednesday.

Gusty winds helped usher in the front, with some parts of West Michigan seeing sustained winds between 30 and 40 mph. Gusts were reported in excess of 50 mph in Holland, Grand Rapids, and on the east-side of the state.
