WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Clouds will thicken overnight ahead of a storm system that will bring us some flurries and a few snow showers for Thursday. The snow will not be heavy and accumulations will be on the order of a dusting to less than an inch, mainly well southeast of Grand Rapids. Friday will feature a few lake effect snow showers but again, accumulations will be light. The next chance for snow will come on Sunday and with temperatures near the freezing mark, some locations closer to the Indiana border may have to contend with a bit of a mix. 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: Becoming mostly cloudy overnight. Not as cold with lows in the single digits. East winds around 5 mph.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy. Light snow showers possible well south/east of Grand Rapids. A dusting is possible as a bigger storm system passes to our south/east into the Northeast United States. Highs in the mid 20s. Winds northeast at 5 to 10 mph.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Scattered flurries. Lows near 10 degrees. Light northeast winds become variable.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with the light lake effect snow showers. Highs in the mid 20s. Southwest to west winds at 5-15 mph.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy to partly sunny. Highs in the mid 20s.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy with snow showers developing later in the day. Highs in the lower 30s.
