Grab the umbrella! A storm system lifting out of the Central Plains will bring rounds of rain, embedded thunderstorms, and spring-like air into West Michigan for the beginning of the work week. The National Weather Service has issued a FLOOD WATCH for the area starting at 12 p.m. Monday and lasting through 5 p.m. Wednesday due to the combination of melting snow and 1-3" of rainfall. Even higher amounts of rain will be possible south of I-94, and along/east of US 131. That's where thunderstorms will be more likely thanks to a southwest to northeastward track across the MI/IN line.
Rain will transition to snow before ending Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures will be much lower Wednesday, near 40 degrees, but that's slightly above normal for the final stretch of February. Looking ahead to the beginning of March, forecast models show a bubble of Arctic air confined to northern Canada. The upper level pattern will support normal to above normal temperatures through the start of Meteorological Spring (March 1) at least.
