Chance of a Period of Flurries
Breezy and Very Cold Wednesday and Thursday
Temps. in 40s coming next week

EARLY MORNING   Watch for icy spots on area roads. A few flurries are possible, but much of the day will be dry.  This morning will be the ‘warmest’ point of the day, with readings in the 20s this morning,

WEDNESDAY   Sharply colder air settles into the area as the day unfolds, as one more Arctic blast is on the way.  Afternoon temperatures will drop into the teens to near 20 degrees, with wind chills dropping back below zero.   We will have a chance of a few lake-effect flurries, but any snow would be very light.

THURSDAY   Thursday morning will feature very cold air in place, with early morning readings running 0 to 5 above and wind chill readings near zero.  Overall, we will feature a mixture of clouds and sunshine, with afternoon highs only in the teens.

FRIDAY   We’ll start Friday morning with temperatures of 5 to 10.  Partly cloudy skies and a breezy southwest wind during the day will boost temperatures to the mid to upper 20s.

WEEKEND WEATHER  Slightly warmer weather will move in for the weekend, with highs climbing back into the mid-30s, so a little bit of melting will begin over the weekend.  A few flurries and light snow showers will remain possible this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry.

LOOKING AHEAD  Warmer weather is definitely on the way for next week.  We’ll see highs approaching 40 on Monday and into the mid 40s for Tuesday and Wednesday.  Considering how cold 2015 has been in West Michigan, those temperatures SOUND really warm, but in reality, temperatures in the low 40s are where our ‘averages’ stand for this time of the year.  Even warmer air is likely toward the end of next week!   At this point, no major storms appear to be on the horizon in the next week.
