GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Did you enjoy the spring-like temperatures this past weekend? That won't be the case this week.
Temperatures were in the 60s to low 70s across much of West Michigan. But now one of the most powerful cold fronts of the year has moved through the region, according to Storm Team 8.
Here are some of the 24-hour temperature changes from Sunday morning to Monday morning --
-21 in Holland
-15 in Grand Rapids
-11 in Kalamazoo
The average high for this time of year is about 47.
It was wet and breezy, with temperatures in the 40s and 50s, Monday morning. There were pockets of heavy rain throughout West Michigan.
As the colder air settled into region, there was the potential for some slushy-wet snow to mix in with that rain but an accumulation was not expected.
The main batch of rain cleared the area late in the morning, and all that is expected for the afternoon and evening is a few lake-effect rain or snow showers. Most areas won't see any accumulation but locations away from the Lake Michigan shoreline could see a trace or dusting Monday evening, mainly on grassy surfaces, as temperatures slide to near the freezing mark by 6 p.m. The wind will continue to gust to near 25 mph out of the west, dropping wind chills into the 20s.
Overnight Monday, we'll slowly dry out with temps bottoming out in the mid 20s, with it being warmer at the lakeshore.
Skies become partly cloudy Tuesday, but highs stay in the 30s as high pressure builds in.
Mostly sunny conditions take over on Wednesday and highs will be a few degrees warmer, reaching the low 40s.
A gradual warming trend continues through the work week, and by next weekend highs will be near 50.
