WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Mainly cloudy skies have returned this evening and overnight ahead of our next weather system expected to arrive on Monday. Snow showers (possibly mixed with rain at times) are expected to develop mid-late morning on Monday and continue at times thru the afternoon and early evening. Monday's system can put down a light coating of snowfall across the region. The trend for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day continues to be sharply colder temperatures, wind chills in the teens and single digits along with high chances for lake enhanced and lake effect snow. We could all have a nice blanket of snow on the ground by Christmas morning. Some along and west of US-131 could even see half of a foot or more of snow by the weekend.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the lower 30s. Southwest to south winds at 5-10 mph.
TOMORROW/MONDAY: Cloudy with snow showers developing mid to late morning. Light snow accumulation of a coating to perhaps as much as an inch mainly on grassy surfaces. Snow can be mixed with rain at times. Highs in the mid 30s. South winds shift to the west northwest at 5-15 mph.
MONDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Lake-effect flurries and light snow showers remain. Slippery road conditions possible. Lows in the lower 30s. Northwest winds at 10-15 mph.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny and mild. Highs in the upper 30s. Northwest winds shift to the southwest at 10-15 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy and windy with rain developing later in the day. Highs in the middle to upper 40s. Sharply cooler temperatures behind the front late evening/overnight will lead to rain changing to snow. Snow could coat the ground by the time we all wake up on Christmas Eve.
