TODAY Warm air surging into West Michigan is creating a slushy and sloppy mess that will easily grab tires and cause slide-offs. The precipitation will gradually wind down mid-afternoon, with a westerly wind shift bringing in some drier air. Light snow is possible toward the end of the afternoon. Temperatures will peak in the mid to upper 30s from I-96 south and even 40s near Kalamazoo and Battle Creek.
TONIGHT Colder air returns, with the potential for an icy start to the Thursday morning commute. Temperatures will drop into the 20s by Daybreak.
COLD RETURNS Chilly Thursday with wind and cold building in. An arctic cold front will zoom in later in the day on Thursday triggering Lake Effect widespread snow showers. Thursday evening and Friday morning's commute could be rather challenging. Arctic air arrives behind the front with temperatures Friday mostly in the single digits accompanied with wind chill temperatures well below zero.
WEEKEND WEATHER Lake effect snow showers will be lighter Saturday but frigid air will stick around. Snow showers will intensify Sunday into Monday with the arrival of a couple more clipper systems to reinforce the Arctic air.
LOOKING AHEAD The cold weather pattern will continue into early February.
