WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Anthony Domol: A couple of Canadian clipper systems will pass through West Michigan this evening and Friday, leading to chances of light snow and light freezing drizzle. A brief wintry mix is possible this evening, before transitioning over to light snow showers during the overnight hours. Any accumulation will be minor, with up to an inch of snow accumulation. Lake effect snow showers take shape on Thursday, with light snow accumulation near the lake shore. As of now, Friday morning has the best chance of seeing substantial accumulations with 1" to 3" widespread. Higher totals of 2" to 4" will be possible along and northwest of I-96, including Grand Rapids, Fremont, and Big Rapids. Some drizzle or light rain showers may mix in as well by the afternoon. Expect your Friday morning commute to be impacted and Arctic air to plunge into the Great Lakes Friday night into Saturday. High temperatures return to the teens this weekend! Make sure to stay up on later forecasts for updates on these systems.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with flurries and light snow showers. Some light rain or drizzle may mix in early. An inch or less of snow is expected in most locations. Lows in the mid/upper 20s. Winds west-southwest at 10 to 15 mph.

THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of light snow showers or flurries. Highs in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees. Winds west at 10 to 15 mph.

FRIDAY: Our next clipper system arrives with early morning snow likely (pre-dawn), perhaps mixing with some rain or drizzle in the afternoon. A general 1" to 3" will fall in most spots, but lake enhancement may generate higher amounts north/west of Grand Rapids on the order of about 2" to 4". Highs briefly warmer in the upper 30s, before more reinforcing Arctic air arrives for the weekend.

SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with light lake effect snow possible. Bitter cold air is back. Highs in the upper teens to near 20.
