WEST MICHIGAN- "You don't like the weather in Michigan? Just wait 5 minutes, it'll change!"  Haha!  In the words of the great Dale Doback, I just laughed so hard I fell off my dinosaur.  But seriously, it's going to be one of those 24 hour turnarounds that make that saying a real reality for us.

Nearly a 40 degree difference will be felt by Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon as a cold front moves through our region.

By midnight Saturday, expect high temperatures in the mid 40s as temps fall throughout the day.

Rain will change to snow by early morning Saturday morning, with wind chills in the low to mid 20s throughout the day.

Another threat will be the strong winds.  Wind gusts will peak at 50 mph with sustained winds in the 25-35 mph range.  This will cause isolated power outages throughout West Michigan in all likelihood.

For most areas, we'll see a light dusting of wet snow in the grassy areas.  At most, you'll see up to 3 inches.  There will be a few lake effect bands that are heavier and overcome the wet pavement, so this will be something to watch out for the evening.
