Today's Forecast

Posted at 5:32 AM, Nov 26, 2019

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Candace Monacelli: Quiet weather is in store through early Tuesday. A powerful weather system tracks into the Great Lakes late Tuesday into Wednesday with wind and rain likely. We will likely see the National Weather Service issue High Wind Warnings and Lakeshore Flood Warnings with this system for Wednesday. Winds will generate 12 to 15 foot waves which will drive significant erosion along the immediate lakeshore. While Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday both appear dry and quiet at this time, another second powerful storm system will arrive Saturday with more significant wind and rain…perhaps some snow showers by Sunday.
Today: Some early morning sun possible, otherwise becoming mostly cloudy. A chance of rain in the late afternoon, a better chance in the evening/night hours. Becoming breezy too. Highs in the upper 40s to around 50. Winds west/east at 5 to 15 mph.
Wednesday: Very windy! Cloudy with rain showers likely and possibly some late afternoon/evening snow showers mixing in. Little/no accumulation. The warmest temperatures occur early in the low/mid 50s, then fall through the day. Winds southwest/west at 35 to 45 mph, gusting to 50 to 60 mph. Power outages are possible! Significant beach/dune/bluff erosion likely with 12 to 15 foot waves at the immediate Lake Michigan shoreline.
Thanksgiving: Partly cloudy and dry. Highs near 40. Much lighter winds.
Friday: Partly cloudy to partly sunny. Highs in the lower 40s.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with the chance for a rain/snow mix before transitioning to all rain chances. Very windy conditions. Highs in the mid 40s.
