Sunny and Breezy Sunday
Very Wet, Windy and Warm Monday and Tuesday

WEEKEND WEATHER   It will be a breezy and chilly Saturday with snow developing this afternoon into the early evening.  Temperatures will climb to the low 30s during the afternoon.  Widespread light snow will fall from mid-afternoon into the evening hours, but total accumulation will only be on the order of 1-2″.  Roads will become slippery, but this is not going to be a heavy snow event for West Michigan.  Sunshine returns for Sunday with afternoon highs near 40.

EARLY NEXT WEEK  Look for cloudy skies and rain showers Monday and Tuesday.  We’ll have to keep an eye on area rivers next week.  With lots of ice in the rivers, some significant rainfall amounts (an inch) and the melting snow, we could see some high river levels next week.   Temperatures could reach the low-mid 50s Monday and Tuesday.

LOOKING AHEAD   A quiet pattern is on the horizon for the second half of the week, with a return to at least partial sunshine and highs in the mid-upper 30s.  .
