Good morning, West Michigan! Can you believe it's November? If you need a little convincing, just step outside and feel the chilly air. The coldest temperatures we've had since last April will be here this weekend, courtesy of the disturbance that brought yesterday's rain-snow mix and a strong area of high pressure which is following. The high will provide clear skies for much of the weekend, but will also funnel a steady supply of cold air from Canada into West Michigan on a northerly breeze.
High temperatures today will struggle to get past 40 degrees, and might stop shy of 40 in some locales. Tonight, we'll have the perfect set up for a very cold night: clear skies, a calm wind, and an ample supply of cold air. By dawn tomorrow, temperatures will have tumbled all the way to the middle 20s.
The unseasonably cold air mass moderates next week, meaning we'll warm to the 50s. Monday should be dry with some increased cloudiness during the afternoon. Rain is likely Tuesday. Another round of chilly air arrives late next week. We're entering a time of year when the weather changes often, so stay tuned!
