Hello, West Michigan! Skies will become mostly cloudy as you're watching Super Bowl 50 with friends and family, but it's still relatively quiet. Tonight's weather will ease you into the work week with only a few sprinkles or flurries possible through sunrise. Temperatures in the lower 30s will meet you for the Monday morning commute with a couple slippery spots possible. Models have trended warmer for Monday afternoon. We're forecasting highs in the upper 30s, maintaining the possibility for both occasional rain and snow showers throughout the day. Forecasting less than a half-inch of snow accumulation west of U.S. 131 through Monday evening. More snow is around the corner!
Live Doppler radar adopts a snowier scene Tuesday through Thursday as northwesterly winds carry cold air over the warmer lake. A big bend in the jet stream keeps Arctic air around into next weekend. Hopefully you enjoyed this weekend's unseasonable warmth! Lake effect snow showers, heavy at times, will favor locations south of a line from Holland to Battle Creek, and west of U.S. 131 from Tuesday morning into Thursday evening. Accumulations are likely (1-3" west of 131 and 3-6"along the Lake Shore) during the long duration event. That will make driving dangerous, especially along secondary roads, as you go to and from work. Stay tuned as we adjust our forecast with the latest model runs!
