GRAND RAPIDS — The forecast from FOX 17 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Craig: A cold front will bring lake effect snow showers to the area overnight, especially along/west of U.S. 131 as colder air filters in. High pressure settling in during the afternoon on Wednesday will give us sunshine before our next system -- a mild one with rain showers -- moves into the region Thursday and Friday.

TOMORROW: Slippery conditions possible with a chance of early morning lake effect flurries/snow showers, otherwise becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Still breezy, and cold. Highs only in the lower/mid 20s. Northwest winds at 10 to 15 mph subsiding to 5 to 10 mph late.
