WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: A Canadian clipper system is on track to pass over West Michigan overnight into early Friday morning, generating a quick burst of 1" to 3" widespread and strong winds. Roadways will be snow covered and slick for Friday morning commutes. Temperatures continue to warm up through Friday, allowing for some drizzle or light rain showers to mix in during the early afternoon. High temperatures on Friday reach the upper 30s! A secondary cold front passes late Friday, allowing a blast of Arctic air to return. With dropping temperatures Friday night, roads are anticipated to be very slick. High temperatures only climb to the teens this weekend! Light lake effect snow takes shape on Saturday, with a few flurries possible on Sunday. We are also monitoring a system for next week. Stay tuned with FOX 17 for the latest updates.

OVERNIGHT: Mostly cloudy and breezy with snow developing around or after midnight. Lows in the mid 20s. Winds south/southwest at 10 to 20 mph.

FRIDAY: Early morning snow likely (pre-dawn), perhaps mixing with some rain or drizzle in the afternoon. Total accumulations of 1" to 3" will fall in most spots, but lake enhancement may generate higher amounts north/west of Grand Rapids on the order of about 2" to 4". Highs briefly warmer in the upper 30s, before more reinforcing Arctic air arrives for the weekend. Breezy too! Winds southwest/west at 10 to 20 mph.

SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with light lake effect snow showers possible, especially along/west of U.S. 131. Bitter cold air is back. Highs in the upper teens to near 20.

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy with flurries possible along/west of U.S. 131. Highs in the teens.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with light snow and flurries possible. Highs in the lower 20s.
