WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Erik Kostrzewa: About the only story we have to talk about in terms of weather in the short-term is the cold airmass that's visiting us, courtesy of a sprawling Canadian High sitting over the Great Lakes. This will give us chilly nights through the weekend, with decent afternoon temperatures. Slow warming begins Sunday when the high is finally far enough east. Areas of frost are expected overnight into Saturday morning for most areas away from Lake Michigan, with a hard freeze possible north of Grand Rapids.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and cold. Areas of frost. Lows in the middle 30s. Northeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny and continued cool. Highs in the lower 60s. Light east/southeast wind.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear and chilly. Lows in the upper 30s to around 40°. Light east/southeast wind.

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny and a bit warmer. Highs in the middle to upper 60s. Southeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.
