GRAND RAPIDS — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Ty Shesky: One might think this snowy system is an indicator of a shift toward a much colder and snowier pattern. Not the case, folks! Our next system arrives late night Thursday into Friday but by that time much milder air will be back in place. Expect rain showers on Friday helping to melt our snowpack away fairly quickly. Colder air arrives on Saturday and a switch to snow showers will be possible.
TONIGHT: A few evening snow showers possible, otherwise mostly cloudy. Lows in the lower to middle 20s. West/southwest winds at 5 to 15 mph.
TOMORROW/HAPPY NEW YEAR: Partly sunny. Highs in the mid 30s. Winds southwest at 10 to 15 mph.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Becoming mostly cloudy. Lows around 30. South/southwest winds at 10 to 15 mph.
