GRAND RAPIDS  — WEST MICHIGAN – West Michigan will start off Sunday with cloudy skies and calm conditions. Breezy southwesterly winds will stay with us all day long making temperatures feel like we are in the 20s. Bundle up as you head out the door! We have some minor snow chances through the afternoon and even some of you especially south of I-96 could see some rain drizzle. We don’t expect much in the way of accumulation or travel impacts.


The snow will be with us briefly throughout the afternoon and early evening before we dry out and break up the cloud cover overnight. Mostly anyone north of I-96 as the most potential to see the most snow. We expect a dusting or less for most across West Michigan with an inch or less possible north of I-96.


The strong southwesterly winds are impacting the lakeshore in the way of flooding and erosion concerns yet again. Waves around 10 feet can be seen with the flooding advisory in place from Sunday afternoon to Monday afternoon.


Mostly temperatures all week stay above average for where we should be sitting in the lower 30s this time of year. After another shot of snow on Tuesday, West Michigan will become mild with rain chances to end the week. Plan ahead for any travel impacts and check back with the Fox 17 weather team for updates.
