WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Patchy Fog Tonight
Bec. Partly Sunny and Warm Tomorrow
Rain Thursday Night and Friday
Winter Returns for the Weekend

TONIGHT  Partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with low temperature near 40. Areas of fog are possible, especially at Lake Michigan.  Winds will be light southwest to south.

MID-WEEK   Most of Wednesday and Thursday will be dry.  Wednesday maybe the warmest day of this incredibly mild stretch with highs expected in the mid-to-upper 60s away from the lakeshore. Once again we will be flirting with record highs which for Grand Rapids is 67 degrees and Muskegon 55 degrees. A weak cold front will slip through early Thursday so temperatures will not be as warm, but still very mild for this time of the year, peaking in the mid to upper 50s away from the shoreline. Cloud will move in by late Thursday with a chance of showers developing during the evening and especially overnight.

LATE WEEK   A strong storm system will move into Lower Michigan Friday.  A strong warm front will move through during the morning bringing with it the potential of heavy rain (1/2 to 1″) including the chance of thunderstorms with gusty winds. It will likely be the last real warm day of February with temperatures expected well above average. High temperatures will range from the mid 60s southeast of Kent Co. to the mid- upper 40s near U.S. 10.

WEEKEND WEATHER    Winter isn’t done yet!   We will see much colder air move in for the weekend, with highs in the 30s and scattered snow showers. It will be windy Saturday and we could remarkably wake up to a little snow on the grassy surfaces Saturday morning.  Models are forecasting up to an inch accumulation with the possibility of slick spots Sat. evening.
