WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Haleigh Vaughn: Temperatures are quickly dropping across West Michigan, along with steady winds from the northwest. The feels-like temperatures will be well below zero tonight, with actual temperatures in the single digits for most. There's a chance for a few snow flurries, with otherwise partly to mostly cloudy skies. This arctic air will spawn additional lake-effect snow showers for Monday and into Tuesday morning, with minor accumulations at that time. Up to 2" will be possible along the lakeshore, and around 1" closer to US 131 by Tuesday morning. This lake-effect situation is not expected to provide high snowfall totals like last week, but still cause travel difficulties with low visibility. Bitter cold air is to be with us for Monday and Tuesday, but temperatures moderate by Wednesday into the start of next weekend.

TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. Isolated lake effect snow flurries. Lows in the single digits, feels-like temperatures below zero. Winds from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph.

TOMORROW / MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with lake effect snow showers. Highs in the middle teens. Northwest winds at 15-20 mph. Wind chills as low as -10 degrees.

TUESDAY: Lingering lake effect flurries and snow showers, mainly during the morning. Otherwise, mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the upper teens to near 20 degrees. Temperatures start rebounding Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly to partly cloudy with warmer temperatures. Highs in the mid 30s.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Small chance for a few snow flurries. Highs in the lower 30s.
