Good evening, West Michigan! It looks like the month of February will go out on a noisy note -- with a chance for thunderstorms tomorrow.
Rainfall through Tuesday evening may approach 1", and rainfall Wednesday before a transition to snow could exceed 1/2". Snow is slated to arrive late Wednesday afternoon as colder air pours into West Michigan on breezy, northwest winds. A grassy or slushy accumulation is possible through Wednesday night. A system swings into West Michigan Thursday spreading light snow near and south of I-96. Light accumulations are possible from this event. Light, lake effect snow showers continue in its wake, mainly Friday morning. A quick shot of snow or a rain/snow mix starts your weekend, but we're breaking 50 degrees with ease by Sunday.
