WEST MICHIGAN — Friday’s high of 14 degrees and low of 2 degrees in Grand Rapids were both 17 degrees below the long term average for the date. This type of cold weather will continue Saturday, but the cold air should lose its grip a little by Sunday and Monday.

In the meantime, however, we can still expect some lake effect snow as that cold air crosses Lake Michigan upon westerly winds.

Here’s how Future Track HD sees things Saturday afternoon:


Bands of snow will continue to stream inland from the big lake today. Some snow is also possible Saturday night in some cases, with up to 3 inches of total accumulation:


The heaviest totals are expected to be west of US-131.

High pressure will build in Sunday, causing the snow showers to taper off. We’re also expecting more sunshine tomorrow along with slightly milder temperatures. Highs should break 20 degrees, and we should be well into the 40s by Tuesday afternoon with a mix of rain and snow.
