West Michigan – We get a brief break from the cold this week, but that won’t last for long as temperatures are expected to drop after air from the arctic flows into the Great Lakes.

We’ll enjoy temperatures in the mid-30s for much of this week, which is several degrees above average. However, that will change by the middle of next week with arctic air flowing into the Great Lakes, which is expected to push temperatures down, with highs in the upper teens and single-digit lows.

The 6-10 day temperature outlook for January 3-7 pushes the center of the coldest air from the northern plains into the west coast.

The 8-14 day temperature outlook January 5-11 keeps much of the country below average. The center of the coldest air will extend from Great Lakes to the far northwest.
