GRAND RAPIDS — GRAND RAPIDS — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: A southwest flow in the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere will continue to maintain a good deal of cloud cover and cool conditions overnight and through Monday. Weak upper-level energy combined with a little moisture from Lake Michigan will give us the prospect for a few sprinkles or spotty light showers overnight into tomorrow. A fair amount of clouds will hang on for Tuesday keeping temperatures quite cool once again. High pressure and drier air works into West Michigan by Wednesday providing for a return to sunshine and thus milder readings. A new system picking up some moisture from the remains of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Zeta may bring showers far enough northward to turn us wet on Thursday.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles or light rain showers overnight. Lows in the upper 30s. Northeast to north winds near 5 mph.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles or light rain showers. Highs in the lower to middle 40s. North to northwest winds at 5 to 15 mph.

MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the lower 30s. Light northwest winds become calm by late evening and for the overnight.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Becoming partly sunny late. Highs in the middle 40s. West southwest winds at 5 to 15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and milder. Highs in the lower 50s.
