WEST MICHIGAN — Michigan's typical back-and-forth weather continues this week, but thankfully it will be more spring this time around rather than winter.

Sunday and Monday will be spring with temperatures well into the 50s and plenty of sunshine to make it feel even warmer. Clouds increase Monday afternoon and evening ahead of a strong cold front which will drop temperatures Tuesday.

This cold front will also spark showers and a few thunderstorms between 6 p.m. and midnight on Monday. The thunderstorms that do develop could contain small hail and gusty winds, but severe weather is not expected. No watches or warnings are anticipated.

The cold air that moves in behind the cold front will change rain showers early Tuesday over to some light snow. No accumulation is expected but don't be surprised if you see a few snowflakes early Tuesday.

Tuesday's temperatures will struggle mightily. Highs will only be in the lower 40s with wind chills in the 20s/30s as winds gusts up to 40 mph.

Winter will only last one day this week as Wednesday we get back towards 60° and Thursday/Friday get into the 60s.
