WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Ty Shesky: Quiet weather will continue tonight and tomorrow with temperatures still running somewhat below average for this time of year. A cold, upper-level low brewing in Canada will drop southward into the Great Lakes region Friday into Saturday. This system will bring temperatures more typical of mid to late March to the region for most of the weekend along with enough instability for a few rain and snow showers on Friday.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy skies. Areas of frost possible, mainly in rural/outlying areas. Lows in the mid to upper 30s. West winds at 5 to 10 mph becoming light and variable.

TOMORROW: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and breezy. Highs in the upper 50s. West/northwest winds at 10 to 20 mph.

TOMORROW NIGHT: Clear to partly cloudy, but more clouds and even some flurries or sprinkles possible well to the south of Grand Rapids. Areas of frost with lows in the lower 30s. North/northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.

FRIDAY: Areas of early morning frost. Otherwise, partly cloudy and cold. Chance of a few rain/snow showers, but no accumulation expected. Highs in the middle to upper 40s. Breezy with north/northwest winds at 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts.

SATURDAY: A widespread, hard freeze is likely in the morning. Otherwise, mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Still cold. Highs in the upper 40s to near 50.
