WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: The coldest air of the season is here! Temperatures fall into the single digits this evening. Brisk winds drive wind chills below zero for the rest of the evening and into Tuesday morning. Bundle up when stepping outdoors, and don't forget to cover any exposed skin. There's a chance for a few lake-effect snow showers along/west of U.S. 131 with an inch or so of accumulation. Two things will mitigate heavy snow. A dry airmass, plus a low temperature inversion around 5,000 feet. Arctic air will be with us through Tuesday morning before temperatures moderate late Tuesday into Wednesday. Most of this week looks to be on the dry an quiet side with more accumulating snow possible this weekend. Stay tuned with FOX 17 for updates.
