The first Nor'easter of the season will bring strong winds, heavy rain and blinding snow to New England. High pressure will build into the Great Lakes behind it bring quiet but cold conditions for us this weekend.

A Nor'easter is given this name because of it's movement up the east coast and it's strong wind, mainly out of the northeast. These storms can become incredibly strong during the colder months.

This storm will bring up to a foot of snow for some along the east coast. Behind the storm, West Michigan will be in an area of quiet and cold conditions thanks to high pressure. While this system will keep us mainly dry, it will not be strong enough to bring us into plentiful sunshine.

This pattern will remain stagnant through early next week. Clouds and cold will become more of the norm before sunshine and milder temperatures slowly return by Wednesday.

The only real change to the forecast is a small snow shower chance on Sunday. Outside of a dusting of snow, nothing is expected to stick or be heavy enough to accumulate. The best chance of see a few of those snowflakes will be along Lake Michigan's shoreline.
