WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Our mild conditions stick around overnight as near record high temperatures are likely early Thursday as another strong storm system moves into the region. High temperatures will be in the lower 60s early in the morning before falling through the day. We think the core of the strongest winds will occur late tonight into daybreak Thursday morning. Wind gusts around 60 mph are likely along the lakeshore, with wind gusts between 50 and 55 mph inland. A HIGH WIND WARNING has been posted for Oceana, Muskegon, Newaygo, Mecosta, and Ottawa counties. The strongest winds will occur in these areas. A WIND ADVISORY has been posted for Kent, Montcalm, Ionia, Allegan, Barry, Eaton, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, and Calhoun counties. Both the advisory and warning remain in effect through 4 P.M. Thursday. We expect power outages to be possible across the state. Cooler temperatures in the 30s will follow the rest of the week. There's a chance for some light snow and mixed precipitation on Saturday. Very small chances exist for any accumulating snow before Christmas.
