WEST MICHIGAN — WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: West Michigan stays dry and breezy overnight, but we are monitoring and tracking a system arriving Wednesday afternoon with rain/wind/warmth. Winds will be southwest at 15-25 mph with 40 mph gusts. Rain showers transition over to a wintry mix or perhaps some freezing rain Wednesday night, then snow showers on Thursday. Several inches of accumulation are possible depending on the exact track of this system. A track further south/east over southern Ohio will mean significantly less snow for our area. A track further north/west over northwest Ohio could mean six inches or more across the heart of our FOX 17 viewing area. The consistency lacks in our forecast models at this time, so make sure to stay up on later forecasts! Towards the end of the weekend and start of next week, we expect temperatures to rebound behind this system back into the 40s.
OVERNIGHT: Mostly cloudy and breezy. Lows in the mid/upper 20s early, then rising into the low/mid 30s overnight. Winds southeast/south at 10 to 20 mph. Gusts up to 35 mph possible.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy, windy, and warmer with rain developing in the afternoon. A half inch of rain or more may fall. Highs in the mid/upper 40s. Winds south/southwest at 15 to 25 mph with 35/40 mph gusts possible.
THURSDAY: Rain transitioning to a wintry mix and then to snow. Several inches are possible depending on the track of this system. Falling temperatures through the day dropping from early highs in the lower 40s at midnight and low/mid 30s at daybreak.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with lingering lake effect snow chances. Highs in the lower 20s.
