WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: Clouds are expected to decrease as we go through this evening and overnight leaving clear conditions and cold temperatures down near 30 degrees to open up the day on Wednesday. Filtered sunshine is in order for Wednesday along with rather mild readings headed back for the mid to upper 50s. Better precipitation chances return Thursday as a strong fall storm tracks into the Upper Midwest. We expect significant wind, rain, and sharply colder air. This could potentially bring a round of accumulating lake-effect snow by the weekend too, perhaps turning the ground white in several locations. Make sure to stay up on later forecasts as we draw closer to the arrival of this system.
