WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Mainly dry conditions expected throughout much of the overnight with lows around 10 above. Lake-effect will build over Lake Michigan tonight and move onshore around sunrise. This will continue inland, heavy at times, and remain steady and persistent through the evening. It will settle down overnight Friday and be just a few flurries by Saturday morning. Accumulations of 1" to 3" is possible along and west of US-131, with less than an inch further east. Some sunshine will be around for the weekend! The next chance for snow will come on Sunday evening with temperatures near the freezing mark. Some locations closer to the Indiana border may have to contend with a bit of a rain/snow mix, otherwise 2" to 3" are possible. Perhaps the biggest story in the extended forecast will be warming temps. Average highs for this time of the year are in the mid 30s and we will likely meet, if not exceed, that mark by early next week.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy early, becoming partly cloudy at times overnight. Lake-effect snow develops for the lakeshore cities by morning. Lows in the upper single digits to middle teens. Wind light and variable.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with lake effect snow showers. 1" to 3" of snow possible along as west of US-131. East of US-131 will see an inch or less. Highs in the middle 20s. West winds at 5 to 10 mph.

SATURDAY: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Flurries possible during the morning. Highs in the mid 20s.

SUNDAY: Increasing clouds with evening snow developing. Highs in the lower 30s.

MONDAY: Light snow/mix early, then drying out. Highs in the mid 30s. 2" to 3" of snow possible from the Sunday night event.
