GRAND RAPIDS — WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Skies will continue to clear out overnight and winds will lighten, leading to another cold night with temperatures in the lower half of the 30s by early Monday morning. While it will be a chilly start to the week, mostly sunny skies will thankfully push us toward 60° by Monday evening. An even milder stretch is likely Tuesday into Wednesday as a couple of clipper-like systems ride well to our north kicking up winds in the Great Lakes region. Behind the second of these two clippers, we go a bit cooler briefly on Thursday before high pressure rides in from the west for Friday, Saturday, and likely Sunday helping to crank up temperatures into the 60s and 70s.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies with temperatures plummeting into the lower to mid 30s. Upper 30s are expected along the lakeshore. Frost will develop overnight for many. Wind will be light.

MONDAY: A likely frosty start with mostly sunny skies throughout the day. Slightly warmer with highs near 60 degrees. South southwest winds at 10-15 mph.

TUESDAY: Partly cloudy. A morning sprinkle or brief rain shower possible mainly well north of Grand Rapids. Pleasant temps with highs in the middle 60s. Southwest winds at 10-20 mph, gusting to 25-30 mph at times.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Again, a morning sprinkle possible well north of Grand Rapids. Mild with highs in the middle 60s. West to northwest winds at 15-25 mph, gusting to 35-40 mph at times.
