WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: A cold front moved through the area today bringing temps down and allowing for scattered light rain showers. Those showers will end this evening, but the cold air will stick around through Thursday. Temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will not go higher than the middle 40s. A wave of low pressure forming along the cold front will bring a chance for snow showers to extreme southern portions of the viewing area by Tuesday afternoon and evening. Very light accumulations of wet snow are possible Tuesday afternoon/evening for extreme southeastern sections. Wednesday and Thursday mornings, we expect a hard freeze with overnight lows dropping into the 20s. The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning from Tuesday evening to Thursday morning for all of West Michigan, plus a Freeze Warning for Oceana and Newaygo Counties tonight. The timing for these warnings will mainly be from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. when temperatures are expected to be below freezing. Temperatures return to almost average with dry conditions by the end of the week.
