WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Expect some lake effect flurries and snow showers in the overnight along mainly the immediate shoreline and especially for southern lakeshore communites say near South Haven to Benton Harbor. A light coating is possible locally. The rest of us will see nothing more than a flurry or two. It's chilly for all with lows in the lower to mid 20s and wind chills in the teens. A few flurries will linger near the lakeshore Thursday morning but inland areas will become mostly sunny. Cold temps continue with highs only in the mid 30s. By Friday, temps start to moderate and that trend is even more noticeable this weekend as we push to near 60 Saturday, and near 70 for Easter Sunday! Thunderstorms are possible by the middle of next week.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy inland, more clouds at the immediate lakeshore with the chance of some light lake effect snow showers or flurries. Lows in lower and mid 20s. Winds become north northwest at 5 to 15 mph.
THURSDAY: Lake effect snow showers possible during the morning, especially near and north of Muskegon and near and south of South Haven. Inland areas will become mostly sunny. Highs in the mid to upper 30s. Winds northerly at 10 to 20 mph, gusting to 30-35 mph at times.
