WEST MICHIGAN — Last week Tuesday and Wednesday a powerful storm with plenty of rain and wind gusts that topped 60 mph blew through the state. Saturday night into Sunday another strong system brought more wind, rain, ice, and snow to parts of Michigan. This upcoming week, things will be more on the quiet side.

There are only a few meager changes for any appreciable precipitation this week. That said, unfortunately temperatures will generally be running below normal only in the mid/upper 30s. We may see a little sunshine here and there, but mostly cloudy skies will also dominate our forecast at a time when we traditionally experience quite a bit of gray skies.

Other than a few flakes/flurries on Tuesday and/or Wednesday, our next chance of a few snow showers occurs with a stronger cold front Thursday night into Friday. By the upcoming weekend, our temperatures may be approaching around 40.

The photo attached to this story was submitted by Jason Bhaskaran. It was taken in Grand Haven and clearly shows the power of Mother Nature after the huge wind storm last week. High water, powerful winds, and 15 foot waves deposited a huge tree trunk across the catwalk on the Grand Haven pier. Note the freighter Manitowoc in the background.
