WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Craig: More snow chances arrive Tuesday morning and afternoon before mixing with/changing to rain showers. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES have been posted for our northern counties of Oceana, Newaygo, and Mecosta with 2" to 3" possible there on both grassy surfaces and roadways. Slippery conditions possible in these locations. Tuesday’s system will transition from snow to rain through the evening and overnight hours as we move into warmer air. Temperatures on Wednesday will push into the mid/upper 40s with off/on rain showers likely. Grand Rapids and vicinity will see about 1" to 2" of snow possible on grassy areas, while anyone south of 96 will likely be on the order of a half inch to one inch. Thanksgiving looks dry with highs in the upper 40s.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear to partly cloudy and cold early, clouds increase late. Lows in the mid/upper 20s. Winds light and variable.
TUESDAY: Some early morning sunshine is possible north/east of Grand Rapids, otherwise becoming cloudy with a chance of light snow in the late morning and into afternoon and early evening. We expect an inch or two of accumulation in some many areas (less across our southern counties) before mixing with/changing to rain showers in the late evening/overnight. Daytime highs in the upper 30s to near 40. Winds southeast at 10 to 15 mph.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with rain showers likely. Lows in the mid/upper 30s. Winds south-southeast at 5 to 15 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Off/on rain showers likely. A bit warmer too. Highs in the mid/upper 40s. Winds east-southeast at 5 to 10 mph.
THANKSGIVING: Some early morning lingering clouds, otherwise partly cloudy to partly sunny. Highs in the upper 40s to near 50.
