GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A wintry mix moved across West Michigan early Thursday morning.
Temperatures warm quickly on Thursday afternoon, meaning any ice that forms will melt quickly. It will be slightly breezy as winds shift to the south at 5-15 mph. That being said, a few school closings may occur due to slick roads.
According to the Consumers Energy outage map, the following counties had more than 100 customers without power as of 12 p.m. Thursday:
- Kent County: 2,116 customers
- Mecosta County: 2,378 customers
- Montcalm County: 210 customers
- Muskegon County: 532 customers
- Newaygo County: 364 customers

Into the weekend, much chillier air will be pulled into West Michigan. This will be cold enough for lake-effect snow showers to develop starting Friday and lasting as late as Monday. By Sunday, areas closest to the lake may see 4-8″.
Next week looks to continue to trend cold with a good chance of even more snow stacking up as a few systems roll through.
