WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Haleigh Vaughn: Mostly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers persist tonight, as temperatures climb slightly overnight. While temperatures are expected to be above freezing, some slick travel conditions are still possible. Temperatures begin dropping closer to daybreak, continuously falling through out the day on Monday. Cold air and strong winds from the northwest generate lake effect snow showers on Monday, with snow accumulations between 1-3 inches possible. Lake effect snow bands could reduce visibility at times, and slick travel will be likely through out the day. Factoring in the wind and dropping temperatures, the feels-like temperatures will be teens to single digits by Monday evening. Wind gusts will be the strongest along the lakeshore, between 40 to 50 mph. Wind gusts inland will range between 35-40 mph. Because of the strong winds, power outages are possible. There's a chance for a few snow flurries on Tuesday, with mostly cloudy skies on Wednesday. Take it slow and check in for updates!
