WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Partly cloudy skies will be with us into the overnight before more clouds show up on the scene late in the overnight as lake-effect rain showers begin to develop particularly to the north and west of Grand Rapids. These lake-effect rain showers will shift into Grand Rapids through the mid-late morning and for the afternoon Friday. Expect a wet ride home from work. The evening sees snowflakes mix in as we go along but any accumulations should be minor Friday night. Having said that, a local slushy, grassy accumulation is possible. Any lake-effect rain or snow showers on Saturday would be insignificant, but a clipper system diving in from the northwest brings a more notable round of wet snow for Sunday morning and early afternoon. This system has potential to drop a couple inches of sloppy snow across the region. Some moderation in the temps takes place into the middle of next workweek.
TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy, breezy, and colder. A slight chance for a shower overnight. Lows in the upper 30s. Winds southwest at 10 to 15 mph.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy, breezy, cold, and blustery with lake-effect rain showers, mixing with snow late. Highs in the low/mid 40s early, then falling through the day into the 30s. Wind chills in the 20s. Winds southwest/west at 10 to 20 mph with gusts around 30 mph.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with lake-effect rain and snow showers. Minor grassy accumulations are possible. Lows in the low to mid 30s.
SATURDAY: A few lake-effect rain and snow showers, with breezy conditions. No accumulation expected. Highs in the lower 40s, wind chills in the 20s.
SUNDAY: Morning wet snow likely. Afternoon rain and snow showers. A couple inches of sloppy snow is possible. Highs in the upper 30s.
